The Table Spreadsheet macro allows you to add an Excel-like spreadsheet. You can work with it both in the page view and page edit mode.

Adding the Table Spreadsheet macro

1. Insert the macro on a page:

  • Start entering /Table Spreadsheet and select the macro

  • On the editor pane, click  Insert -> View more , find the macro and insert it on the page

The page stores your spreadsheet as an attachment. You can find more information about the attachment or download the file in the page settings.

The last 10 versions of a spreadsheet are saved by default. You can retain all spreadsheet revisions.

Reusing of the Table Spreadsheet macro

  1. Save data in the Table Spreadsheet macro via File->Save (to have a generated name) or via File->Save As (to name it yourself).
  2. Get to the page you wish for the spreadsheet's new location. Open the page in the edit mode and insert the Table Spreadsheet macro. Open the spreadsheet created earlier via File->Open->type your spreadsheet's name.

Once any changes on the page are added and saved, it will affect all the spreadsheets, treated as the same spreadsheet. The attachment, however, will be placed only on the source page where the spreadsheet was originally created and saved.

To make an independent copy of the spreadsheet to work with it further on, i.e. add it as an attachment of the selected page and reform it without affecting the original one, save the spreadsheet on the page with another name via File->Save As->type your name->Save

 Read only mode in Table Spreadsheet

Enable Read only mode if you wish no content of your Table Spreadsheet to be adjusted beyond the page edit mode.

  1. Insert the macro on a page or open the existing Table Spreadsheet.
  2. Navigate to File -> Settings.
  3. Check the option Read only mode.
  4. Save Table Spreadsheet.

Enabling the Read only mode option covers the toolbar of a spreadsheet and automatically protects its content to prevent editing in the view mode.

Spreadsheet Autosave

  1. Navigate to File -> Settings
  2. Tick Autosave

The Autosave option saves your spreadsheet changes automatically. It ensures your recent work is saved effortlessly, but notice that older versions beyond the latest 10 won't be stored.

Spreadsheet Macro height

  1. Navigate to File -> Settings
  2. Locate the Macro height field
  3. Set the necessary value in pixels(px)
  4. Save the setting as well as the Spreadsheet macro.

The Macro height setting requires the minimum value of 400px being the Table Spreadsheet's default macro height or higher, meaning the values below this threshold cannot be entered.

Protecting the sheet

  1. Select a sheet to protect
  2. Navigate to the Moreâ–¾ section on the editor pane
  3. Choose Protect the sheet
  4. Check the Protect the sheet and contents of locked cells setting to enable protection
  5. Check all necessary parameters in the allowed actions list
  6. Save the setting and the macro.

 Retain all spreadsheet revisions 

  1. Navigate to File -> Settings
  2. Tick Retain all spreadsheet revisions in the Advanced options section

Enabling the Retain all spreadsheet revisions option will result in higher storage usage. This means that each version or change made to a spreadsheet will be saved and take up storage space.
