How to combine content of two different tables into one table?

Hi!

Is it possible to combine the content of two or more different tables across different spaces into one "Master" table? All the tables have the same columns/titles, what I want to do is to aggregate all the content on one overview page/table.

I am playing around with excerpts, the reporting plugin and the meta-data plugin for quite a while now, but I can't figure it out.

Thanks for your help!
Cheers,
Tom

You could use the page properties and page properties report macros which you can think of as an excerpt-include macro for tables. The only caveat is that it won't work across pages in different spaces.

The Requirements Blueprint uses these macros so if you're on Confluence 5.1, can see how this work in the Requirments Blueprint.

Thx. Will give it a try. I am upgrading instance to Confluence 5.

I did look at page properties but wasn't sure if appropriate. On each page I have table with 6 fields, one of which is audio attachment. Pages with same identifier (could be another field or page property) are aggregated into one summary table. We used to do this via Scaffolding & Reporting plugins but felt it should be possible within Confluence.

Thanks for the answers so far!

Unfortunately, we are still on Confluence 4.

Is there any other solution that does not require the Scaffolding plugin and does work across different spaces?

Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any way to combine 2 Page Properties macros or even 2 tables in 1 Page Properties macro to show them as 1 entry in a Page Properties Report.
