I need to either combine two tables into one OR have row-by-row permissioning based on department code in a column.

Newbee question - we use Confluence to display department glossaries and I need to either:

1) merge the (currently two) department's glossary (similar layout) into one OR

2) have row-by-row permissioning based on a new column with department code and appropriate access/security groups after manually merging them?

I even ried doing it in Excel first and rendering it using office macro but of course lose the ability to use anchors.

Any help/guidance appreciated.

Can you leverage the Page Properties and Page Properties Report macros? This is a great way to control access since you can pull from page trees (with edit/view restrictions) or from different spaces although (with their independent permission schemes.)

I do not use tables if I can use page properties. I'd rather deal with pages than deal with sections of a table.

If this doesn't work, could show us an example of what the structure looks like? I can't visualize it off of your description. 

Hmm - thought I responded but I guess not - the requirements was changed right after posting my question and the want is for a table with row level security tied into a new column containing the group name/entry owner..
