Hi there,

I created a macro table and when I checked the table it is diving every single table.

is there a way all the information can be in one table without the header for each table?

 

thanks

Hi @Lorena Alexandra Granados ,

Please give us some details about the issue. Are you trying to collect several tables into one big report? Maybe you are using the standard Page Properties/Page Properties Report macros or our company's Table Excerpt/Table Excerpt Include macros?

The main reason that your tables are not collected into one big table is that somewhere your headers are messed up (typos, extra columns, etc.). You should check them thoroughly.

If this is not your case and I got it wrong, please clarify it a little bit.

Hello Katerina,

Please see pictures below.  Is the master table looks good? or Do i have to format better the headlines as it is diving them

Seems that the header rows look alike (I can see only 4 columns on the screenshot).

But what macro do you use to combine these two tables into one big report?

Hi Katerina,
I cant share the rest of the table due to confidentiality.  This is the macro I used macro.png 

So they are indeed our macros - Table Excerpt/Table Excerpt Include.

Go to the Table Excerpt Include macro and check if the "Show as a report table" is ticked:

If there are no any typos/extra columns in the header row, your separate tables will be merged into one big report.

If you don't see the option, it means that your version of the app is old and you need to ask your Confluence administrator to update it (the current version is 9.3.0).

Meanwhile, you may use the following workaround: wrap your Table Excerpt Include macro in the Table Transformer macro and combine the tables using the standard merge preset.

But despite this workaround I strongly recommend to update the app - otherwise you'll be missing new features and improvements.

You went to the settings of the Table Excerpt macro.

And you need to go to the Table Excerpt Include macro - the one that you use on your master page to collect several tables into one big report.

You may check this post related to a similar case https://stiltsoft.com/blog/how-to-create-reports-from-multiple-confluence-tables/ 

From your screenshot I see that you use two Table Excerpt Include macros: one for the "members" Table Excerpt and the second for the "vacancy" Table Excerpt.

If you want to combine several Table Excerpt Include macros (not the tables inside one Table Excerpt Include, but outputs of several different macros), wrap them both into the Table Transformer macro and choose the "merge" preset.

The Expand macro should be better on top of the Table Transformer macro.

I dont need the Master Vacancy Table anymore.  Is there a guide or steps that you can share with me please.

thanks,

Lorena

It's divided into steps and provides screenshots with highlighted settings.

Thanks.

Now I am having another issue - two of the tables are missing from the macro.  Is there any way you can help me?

As the Table Excerpt Include macro collects Table Excerpts by names and by labels if the "Pages with labels" option is chosen, you may check the names of the missing excerpts and the labels of the correspondent pages (typos, extra spaces, etc.).
