In Table Transformer macro, FORMATWIKI with {cell} is not recognized

Will O March 22, 2023

My goal is to change the width of a specific column in a table. Any ideas about what I may be doing wrong?

Following the example syntax to adjust width from Table Transformer documentation (, I'm getting an error for the macro indicating 'cell' is unknown. I don't see {cell} listed on the FORMATWIKI Docs page, so I was curious if using {cell} is outdated or if there is an issue here with how I'm trying to set the width.

Hi Will O,

Your query seems to be correct:

FORMATWIKI("{cell:width=100px}" + 'Description'+ "{cell}") AS 'Description'

You may also find an example in the documentation (please navigate to the “Changing column width” section).

If the function is not recognized by your Table Transformer macro (you get errors in the preview) and you are on Server/Data Center, we can suggest checking the version of the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app. The current one is 9.8.0. Please update if required.

P.S. You didn’t show us the macro preview. Sometimes if your page is a bit overloaded, you may get the “Unknown macro” instead of the “Table Transformer” like you’ve got on the second screenshot. But the query may work just fine – so it’s not an issue.

Hi @Will O ,

An update for your question: it seems that the behavior regarding the “Unknown macro” instead of the proper macro name was caused by this Confluence bug.

As the bur is not resolved, we corrected the behavior locally for the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app (since 9.11.2 version).
