Is there an easy way to create a calendar or timeline from a table report?
Yes. If the application administrator has specified default calendar and timeline settings for an application, you can easily create a calendar or timeline from a table report just by clicking a link. QuickBase uses the default settings as a basis for creating the calendar or timeline.
To create a calendar or timeline from a table report:
Display a table report.
In the menu at the top of the report, click Other, and then click Report Table as a Calendar or Report Table as a Timeline.
Save the calendar or timeline by clicking Save this report.
Note: If calendar or timeline defaults have not been set, then Report as Calendar and Report as Timeline won't appear as options. Read how to set defaults for calendars and for timelines.

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, QuickBase often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, QuickBase finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. QuickBase needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:
If you want to create three separate Acme records (Acme-New York, Acme-Dallas and Acme-Portland) click the Conform link at the top of the column.
If the dissimilar entries are mistakes (say Acme only has one office in New York and the other locations are data-entry errors) go back into your table and correct the inconsistencies—in this case, changing all locations to New York. Then try the conversion again.
