Table Toolbox -> Table Transform -> Table Except -> Page Properties -> Page Properties Rpt no work

Russell Tobin February 29, 2024

Hi,

I'm using Table Toolbox to combine a couple of other table together and put it as table in a Table Excerpt.

Then using Table Excerpt Include inside the Page Properties macro to include the table.

So far good, page displays like I want and I'm a happy golfer.

Except now I go to the parent page with a Page Properties Report macro on it.
No matter what I do I can't get any of the fields from the child page's Page Properties to update in the Page Properties Report.

Unfortunately I need to keep using the Page Properties Report.

This may be the same issue as:

Is there a fix

Hi @Russell Tobin 

I think it is and as mentioned o that post, this can't be fixed.

The message is also from the vendor of the table toolbox.

The Page Properties Report macro can't process dynamic macros, it collects only manually created tables.

You may just switch your Page Properties/Page Properties Report macros to another pair of Table Excerpt/Table Excerpt Include macros.

I mean that on some sub-pages you may insert Table Excerpt Include macros in your Table Excerpts, on other sub-pages you may insert manually created tables, but as a result all of them will be collected by another Table Excerpt Include macro on your master page (for example, by labels as you do it in the Page Properties Report macro).

Thanks, I was kinda hoping that it was fixable and had been fixed by now..... sigh.
