Row configuration options

Columns and rows are different ways that data can be organized into a grid. Rows and columns are different when it comes to data organization. This support article provides an overview of row customization. Refer to this support article for an overview of row concepts.

Data in a column is aligned vertically from top to bottom, while data in a row are arranged horizontally from left to right.

In this section, we will provide an overview of how to add and organize data within rows, and how to use them for different types of projects and workflows.

I cannot select more than 200 rows in a table.

Multi-selecting rows are limited to 200 selections at a time. You can only select a maximum of 200 rows at a time because Baserow lazy loads only 200 rows at a time. This is so you can easily scroll through millions of rows without having to download them all.
