Article Summary

In this article, we’re going to take a look at a couple of other text functions that can extend functionality in your Airtable base. This article is part of a guided course which you can view here.

  • T()
  • REPT()

These functions are very simple, so it won’t take too long to learn how they work.


This function returns the argument if it is text, and otherwise returns blank.

T("Text only") would return the argument, "Text only", while T(42) would return as blank.


This function repeats any referenced string a specified number of times.

For example, REPT("Hi! ", 3) would result in Hi! Hi! Hi!.
