How to remove the brackets from the value received from airtable

I wanted to get only one row of a column in airtable. Hence I set the maximum record value to 1. Till now everything was correct.
I wanted to display the text received from airtable in a label. Hence I added the following code…
What I get is the value of the spreadsheet but with two brackets before and after the text. Is there any way I can remove that and why is this happening?




If there are only two brackets(at the start and at the end) you can use segment block for delete them.

You can use two replace blocks even…

What if there is another bracket in the text?

Two replace block i mentioned , in one replace block ,can add ( and in another block he can add )… even if more number of brackets obtained it will be removed

But dora method will be good to use.

i mean if there is another bracket in the main text: for example main text is sqrt{25}=5. when he received this text it will be {sqrt{25}=5}. if you use replace block it will be sqrt25=5


yes, fully agree

Airtable returns values as list, so since you are setting max record to 1 with above blocks you will get sqrt{25}=5

Thanks for your valuable reply. But using these blocks, I can only remove the bracket at the first but the last bracket still remains.

@Didyme_Apps Why use so many blocks when in the specific problem it can be done with one block ?


oh i am sorry i sent the block without testing, write length.values - 2 instead of 1

It worked!!! Thanks a ton. Can you please edit the above solution so that i can mark it as the correct answer.

I really can not understand the logic in that solution, you have a list with just one item and you want to use segment and …


Me too …

okay, just one minute

done. you can mark it as a solution

rather than removing brackets you should learn how to work with lists…
