Dynamic text link between parent/child pages

Hello all!

New to Confluence and trying to figure out how to create a dynamic text link between a single field in a child page and a table in a parent page.  



Parent Page

Table A

row0 | Col1 | Col2 | Co3l |

row1 |

row2 |                       

row3 |

row4 |

row5 |

etc.. |


Child Page 1: Enter text in single field & it shows up in Table A R1C3

Child page 2: Enter text in single field & it shows up in Table A R2C3

Child page 3: Enter text in single field & it shows up in Table A R3C3


I've tried making a single column/row table on child page but can't seem to be able to connect the two


Thank you for taking a look at this problem in advance,

Jeff Walton

Hey yeah, I wasn't sure @Florian PEREZ 's suggestion would work in Tables, but whaddya know, it works great!

Documentation: Insert the include page macro

If it's just a particular part of a Child Page that you want to include, you might try using the Excerpt Include Macro:

The Excerpt Include was the perfect solution for what I was trying to do.  Wish it was a little more intuitive, but with any program that'll come with time.

Hello ! 

Not sure on what you're trying to acheive but you can try to use the include page macro in Confluence.  It'll display all the content of the targeted page into the page you use it.  

Hope this can help! 

I can see the Include Page being helpful, but the Excerpt include was a little more pertinent this time.  Thank you for answering though! Every little tip and trick is appreciated!
