How to build a table from other tables

I have a series of status pages that each contain a table of data, such as project milestones. I'd like to have an additional page that pulls the rows from each of the tables on those individual pages and builds a master table that contains all of them in a single table, using something like a multi-excerpt type macro. I do not have access to the Table-excerpt macro, however, so I need a solution that doesn't use it.

Any ideas?

Hi Tim,

This is not possible in Confluence without a 3rd party add-on. Have a look at this past question for a list of suggestions:

Otherwise, you might be able to get the Page Properties Report macro to work for your needs, but it would need to pull from a single Page Properties macro on another page.

Regards,

Shannon

Thanks, Shannon - you probably saved me hours of thrashing!

The page properties / reports macro is great - definitely worth checking out.

I will check it out, thanks!

How about using the Office Excel macro using spreadsheet pages for your tables? The first sheet combines all the others (in your Excel file) and is on your parent page. Each child page gets a subsequent sheet in the spreadsheet file. When you use the spreadsheet macro, you can specify the sheet.
