How to get only value from JIRA macro?


does somebody have a clue how it could be possible to get a field value out of the JIRA macro? I need to retrieve only one field value for one issue, which means JQL with issue key, format Table and select only one column. The problem is, that the macro always returns a formatted table and I only need the value inside. Isn't there some way, I don't know, to wrap it in a user macro and somehow extract the value retrieved? Having to rescript the whole JIRA macro only because of the final formatting not being suitable is like taking a canon to kill a fly.

Thanks for any suggestions.
