I have such a simple problem and have no idea how to solve this in Confluence.
I have a page (Page A) with a table
ID Name Phone
111 John Smith 111-222-3333
112 Mary Smith 111-222-4444
I have other pages (Page B and Page C) where at the top of the page I would like to enter the ID from the table above, and have the Name and Phone number of that associated record shown on that specific page. So basically 3 pages. A is the table of person records, and the other 2 pages (B and C) would be the detail pages for that record, created dynamically based on a static entry of the ID at the top of those pages.
Is any of this possible? Thanks.
Your use cases is exactly what Scaffolding and Reporting is used for.

I will be more than happy to prepare a demo for your use case, If you are interested please create a support ticket in here
If you split up the table, then you might be able to make use of the Content by Label macro (e.g. use a label for each ID) or the Page Properties and Page Properties Report macros.
There are some CRM solutions in the marketplace that might solve for your example specifically https://marketplace.atlassian.com/search?query=crm
But also have a look at the Reporting for Confluence app by ServiceRocket https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/186/reporting-for-confluence?hosting=server&tab=overview
There are probably other ways to do this using just built-in functionality or making it easier to use the built-in macros for your use case, but that would be more complex to answer than I can here.
Thanks everyone for answering last week’s question. The winner of the random drawing from those who commented is: @LarryBrock I’ll contact you separately with your prize details. This wee...
