Reference table from separate doc

In google sheets, you can reference a table in another Google Sheet. In Coda, I’m hoping to do something similar, and pull in tables/data from different docs into one.

For example:

  • Doc A contains bunch of sections including a table (let’s call it table A)
  • Doc B contains bunch of sections including a table (let’s call it table B)
  • In Doc C, I want to show table A and table B (or versions of them)

Is there a way to reference table from separate doc? :thinking:

I’m no expert but I don’t think this is doable as I don’t think Coda actually support referencing other docs.

But what you could possibly do, is put everything in one doc and grouping things by folders and sections :

  • Folder A : everything that concerns the sections of the doc A and the table A
  • Folder B : everything that concerns the sections of the doc B and the table B
  • Folder C : The table C with the info gathered from table A and Table B

Or maybe in doc C, duplicate the tables A and B (Copy/Paste) and keep them in sync with the original table by using Zapier as suggested in this post ?

We’re getting close!
