Table filter on Excerpt include stopped working

I noticed today that all my Table filters based on "Excerpt includes" don't work anymore. Depending on the settings within the table filter I either get no output, or the following error message is displayed:

"Oops, it seems that you need to place a table or a macro generating a table within the Table Filter macro."

So the issue has been resolved. It used to work to have a table on a page, and the excertp include on another page pointing at the page with the table. This behaviour stopped working although it was never intended to work this way. The page with the table should always have contained the excerpt macro with the table inside. Then the page with the excerpt include macro can grap the content of the data inside the excerpt macro on the other page. The concept is simple if you get it.

Is still broken. Used to work until the beginning of 2020.
