How to present a tables from a few different pages within a new common page?

Case:

I have a 3 pages on Confluence. On every page there is one or more tables which I want to present on the one common page.

I know the Excerpt/Excerpt Include macro, but I am looking for a solution which will automatically adding a newly created tables.

Maybe there is a possibility to tag a tables by a specific tag and then use some macro on the common page which will automatically import a tables which meets the tag?

If the three pages contain *only* the table(s), you can use this awesome user macro created by @Davin Studer.

## @param ShowTitle:title=Show Title|type=boolean|desc=Deselect to remove the title of the child page.|default=true
## @param LinkTitle:title=Link Title|type=boolean|desc=Select to turn the titles of the child pages into links to those pages (Show Title must be selected).|default=false
## @param Order:title=Order|type=enum|enumValues=Nav Order,Reverse Nav order,Alphabetical,Reverse Alphabetical,Create Date,Reverse Create Date|default=nav order|desc=What order should the child pages be displayed? Nav Order refers to the order of the child pages in the nav tree. Reverse Nav Order simply reverses that.
