Hi, please can someone explain in simple terms!! for me!! :wink: what this expression will do?

Where it will look and how it works.

Its basic I know but I need to fully understand it…

=[Audit ID].[Auditor ID]

Let’s suppose you have two tables. Table1: Audits

Col1: Audit ID

Col2: Auditor ID

Col3: Name

Col4: Phone no

Tables2: Transaction Info

Col1: Transaction No

Col2: Transaction Date

Col3: Audit ID (type: ref,

refTable: Audits)

Col4: Auditor ID (type: text, App formula: [Audit ID].[Auditor ID])

Col4 in table2 will give you Auditor ID from Col2 of table1, where Audit ID in Col1 of table1 and Col3 of table2 are same.

This is called dereferencing
