I've created a table in Page A.

I inserted data in table in Page A.

I've created a new Page B

I want the data in Page A to show exactly in Page B.

Every time I enter new data in the table in Page A, I want it to reflect automatically in Page B.

Similar function as in Excel when I use the "=Page A"

Help please.

    The capability you're describing typically involves linking or referencing data between pages in a document, and it depends on the specific software or platform you are using. If you're working within a word processing application or a document editor, the method might vary.

    Here are general steps you can follow in different scenarios:

    Microsoft Word:

    1. Insert a Cross-reference:
      • In Page B, where you want the data from Page A to appear, place your cursor.
      • Go to the "References" tab.
      • Click "Cross-reference" or "Insert Caption," depending on your version.
      • Choose the table or figure you want to reference from Page A.
    2. Use Fields (Advanced):
      • You might need to use fields or formulas if you want dynamic updating.
      • Insert a field where you want the data in Page B.
      • For example, you can use { LINK PageA.docx \* MERGEFORMAT }.
      • This can be complex, and you may need to adapt it to your specific needs.

    Microsoft Excel:

    1. Link Cells:
      • If your table is in an Excel sheet, you can link cells between sheets.
      • In Page B, enter =PageA!A1 (adjust cell reference as needed).
      • This links the cell in Page B to the corresponding cell in Page A.
    2. Use Named Ranges:
      • Define named ranges for your table in Page A.
      • In Page B, use those named ranges to reference the data.

    Google Docs or Sheets:

    1. Use Cross-document Linking (Google Docs):
      • In Google Docs, you can create a hyperlink to a specific section or heading in another document.
      • Select the text in Page B, right-click, and choose "Link." Enter the link to the section in Page A.
    2. Use Import Range (Google Sheets):
      • If working in Google Sheets, you can use IMPORTRANGE function to pull data from one sheet to another.

    Remember, the exact steps can vary based on the application you're using, and the above steps are general guidelines. If you provide more details about the software or platform you're working with, I can offer more specific guidance.
