Columns & Content

A column is a set of data values, all of a single type, in a table. Columns define the data in a table, while rows populate content into the table.

Columns separate data into unique types. When Xano creates a database table, the default columns are id and created_at.

More columns can be added and each column can have a different Data Type. The icons next to the column headers indicate which type they are.

Rows of the table are considered to be the content where you can populate the data of each column. The data that can be entered is defined by the chosen Data Type for the column. For example, if the Data Type is a timestamp, Xano provides a date and time picker to make it easier to format your data consistently.
