As a user working with lots of documents with similar structure, I am used to duplicating tables a lot. This has cause a lot of problem because I’m unaware of the duplication and thus a lot of data seems to be lost. Any way I can see all the duplicated tables in the document? Thank you.
Hi @Ujwal_Shrestha1 and Welcome to the Community !
What do you mean exactly by “duplicated” table ?
Because, there are 2 ways to duplicate (copy/paste) a table :
1 - The effective duplication which creates a brand new table and is not linked to the original table
2 - Connected Views which creates some kind of “mirror” of the original table and is linked to that table (i.e.: what you do in the orignal table or its view(s) will reflected everywhere ).
Note the small 1 just next to View of Table 3 in the screenshot below .
It appears when the table is hovered and indicates there’s 1 link (here) between this view and the original table.
The original table (
Table 3 in this case) also display this 1 next to its title when hovered .
And the Doc Map also shows that the
Table 3 has
1 connected view where
Table 1 and
Table 2 are 2 different tables (even though
Table 2 is a duplicated
Table 1 )
You’ll find the Doc Map of your doc by clicking on the icon (which leads to the document settings) somewhere at the top right of your screen. It’s the 3rd “menu” in the list
Or, you can also check in the Options of a table . There’s a section called Connections. And this is exactly where the 1 I mentioned earlier will take you if you click on it
