Subject:Link to Excel table with filtering enabled From:John Posada <jposada99 -at- gmail -dot- com> To:Tech Writers <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com> Date:Mon, 4 Jun 2018 13:07:18 -0400
Hi, guys...long time.
I want to add a link that references an Excel table, but I want it so that
it reads the filtering setting.
Background: I have an Excel that functions as a glossary of abbreviations,
acronyms and terms, defined by a document number.
I have a couple of hundred Word documents, that each may contain 3 to 10 of
the terms in the glossary. I want to include a link that shows only the
terms that happen to be in that document. The next document may have a
different set of entries.
Is there a way of including a link just for that document, simialr to how
you can do a search in Google and capture the lionk that when you send to
someone, they get the same search page.
BTW...the Glossary is in Excel, the documents are in Word
