When I regenerate a table that have a field with a “Valid_If” or “Show_If” formula, the “Description” column definition is filled with that formula (see the picture below). Is this the expected behavior? This is not happen some weeks ago. With this behavior, anything else I have set in “Description” is overwritten with the formula. And those columns I want with an empty “Description” will be filled. So every time I need to regenerate, I need to manually change every column to revert.

No, this definitely seems like a bug. Will investigate

Could you please send the app name and details to support@appsheet.com

— thanks


Details sent.

This is because you have comments on your column headers (in the spreadsheet) with this information. Please remove these comments and then your regenerate will work as expected.


@praveen Uau, Thank you. I didn’t realize this information will be used by the App. I add this information there just as a way to remind me the constrain that I have done in these fields. I thought I have found a way to minimize the lack of code annotation, but not. I will remove it. Thank you again. I will keep learning…
