How can I generate multiple tables from info on the same page

Hi.

I'm trying to change how my team captures tasks in the design phase.

I'd like them to write their features within a table, and include a unique task code, the description & a priority code.

Then from all these features on the page, I want to auto-generate tables of task codes, descriptions according to the priority.

So the first generated table would have all the A rated priority tasks which would be spread over multiple unique feature tables on the page, then a table of all the B rated priority tasks, etc.

 

e.g.

There would be multiple Feature tables, Feature 1, 2, 3, etc

Within each feature the priority of the sub-features would differ.

Want to auto-generate tables of all the A priority tasks, another one with the B priority tasks, etc

I can't think of anything that does this. Maybe you could adjust your methodology and use the page properties and page properties reports macro to get something similar.

Thanks for the thought Davin.

I'm flexible with my approach, I'm looking to avoid human error so they only have to update a piece of info in one place and not two places.

Having read the Page Properties explanation, I don't see how it relates to what I'm trying to do. What were you thinking?
