Hi Diego,

I think there is no way to hide the columns if you are using an excerpt. Better copy the table and remove the columns you want to hide.

Thanks!

Hi Diego,

You can apply Table Filter macro to the included table to hide columns.

@Andrey Khaneev [StiltSoft]  - When I am using excerpt Include for mirroring the master table to another page .. in the edit mode I don't see the table .. I only get to see the excerpt Include macro and edit option for that.. how can one apply the filter to the tables which are mentioned under excerpt include Macro???

Same issue I am facing with Table excerpt Include Macro.

 

My requirement is I have a table with 7 different columns on page 1 and Page 2 I want 3 of the original 7 but add a few more extra columns.

@Andrey_Khaneev__StiltSoft_  - I can add the filter but how can I add new columns to the mirror table??

My requirement is I have a table with 7 different columns on page 1 and Page 2 I want 3 of the original 7 but add a few more extra columns.

There are two approaches:

1. Let's use three pages: Page A with 7 columns, Page B with 3 + 3 columns and Source Page with 10 columns. Source Page contains Table Excerpt macro with a 10 columns table:

Page A includes this table and hides columns 8-10:

Page B is similar to Page A, but hides columns 4-7.

The second approach consists of two pages: Page A and Page B.

Page A has a table with 7 columns:

The numbering column is used further on Page B. Page B has:

  1. Table Excerpt Include macro.
  2. The second table with 3 new columns and the numbering column.
  3. Table Transformer to lookup tables with 7 and 3 columns. The numbering column is used as an ID for lookup.
  4. Table Filter macro hides columns 4-7.

Thanks much @Andrey_Khaneev__StiltSoft_  for clear instruction, i was able to figure it out but unfortunately my organization is yet to upgrade the Table filter and Chart for confluence plug-in. We are still on  Version: 4.5.3”

Once the version is upgraded i'll work as you suggested and post my query (if any).
