Text
This topic describes the string/text data types, supported in Budibase
The text data type stores text, including numbers - also known as a string. A text column is a good choice if you want to store data like names, addresses, or simple custom data. It is a popular data type and one you are more than likely going to use.

​

Creating a text column

The process for creating a text column takes a few seconds.
    1.
    First, click the Create New Column button
    2.
    Give your text column a name - we used Name in the video above.
    3.
    Due to the popularity of the text data type, it is shown by default; so there's no need to change it.
    4.
    Click Save Column
    5.
    Add data to your new column by adding rows​

​

Using the text data type

In the Design section, you can pull in information from your Text column, using the Repeater component and binding.
