For all QuickBase users, you can find the database ID of a table in the address bar of your browser when you're looking at any page of the table. The home page of all QuickBase applications has a DBID that does not refer to any of the tables in the application. You must navigate to a form or view that is specific to your table to cause the proper dbid to appear in your browser's address bar.

Yes! QuickBase works on your iPhone. While you can access pretty much any QuickBase feature from your phone, Intuit recommends that you limit your activities to using applications only. Find, view and update information in an application, but do not attempt to change the structure of the application via iPhone. Do advanced customizations on a full computer only.
