Looking for ways to export a table to CSV or XLSX

I have an app that connects to a SQL database and displays data in a table on a page that I have created. I would really like to have an option to export the data in that table to a CSV or XLSX file.

I did find an app in the Marketplace by Bitwelt Software called Table Exporter for Confluence. It does allow data from tables to be exported in manner that I'm looking for; however, I am running into an issue.

I have a filter set so that when you access the page with the table, there is data present. You can also update the filter so that you are presented with different data. The app will perform the export but it does not pickup that there is new data to export (it only exports data that shows on the page when it is loaded).

Does anyone have experience with this app and can point me in the right direction? I have reached out to their support but have not heard anything back yet. Or is there something else (a different export app) that I should try?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi @Matthew Buchanan ,

You may try the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app.

It allows you to export both original and filtered/aggregated tables to CSV (this is your case!), PDF and Word. Here is our short two-minute blog post with examples and screenshots.

Thank you! I will give this a shot, though I potentially see some issues. I believe your app uses the Confluence Table as the method to perform functions. The app that I am using to bring the SQL data in is still a table, but it is not a Confluence Table.

The app works with any tabular Confluence data (not only plain manually created tables, but different dynamic tables such as Jira Issues, Page Properties Report macros, etc.).

It also includes the Table from CSV and the Table from JSON macros, so you'll be able to connect your database to Confluence via these macros and get a dynamically changing table right onto your Confluence page.

Then you'll be able to filter and aggregate your data and export the result (or an original table) back to CSV and upload it somewhere else, for example.
