I'm trying to update a record in Airtable. The field is in number type, but doesn't accept number.

The error message is:

error > type INVALID_VALUE_FOR_COLUMN
error > message Field "search past 30d" cannot accept the provided value

How to correct this?

I'm having a similar issue trying to copy data from Google Sheets to an Airtable number field. The number appears fine in Google Sheets. It is mapped in Airtable: Create Record, but the number is changed. If for example the number in Google Sheets is 72,309.25, it gets copied to my Airtable Base as 72. When I change the Airtable field from a "Number Field" to a "Single Line Text" field, the complete number appears. Leaving it as text is useless to me because I need to include this number in a formula to do other things in other fields.

Hey @Roberto

If you are using the number field in your Airtable action step then you need to pass the amount in the following manner.

E.g. - 79500.12
