    Hello Tobias,

    I have a question for you.
    I’m working on a website where I would like to automatically create tables with the amount of funds that are shorting a stock. Something similar to s h o r t i cs .com

    Everyday data is published on the regulatory authority websites for example:
    http://www.consob.it/web/area-pubblica/pnc (click on PNC su titoli azionari, aggiornate e storiche). That excel data is then downloaded and can be used and filtered based on date and stock.

    Is there a way, adding these spreadsheet on google sheets, to automatically have it uploaded every day on tablepress? and is there a way to use tablepress data for charts?

    Thanks
    Stefano

    Hi,

    thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.

    To be honest, I would not use TablePress for such dynamically changing data. Sooner or later, you will reach limits and then have to redo everything. Your best chance here probably is to directly use a solution based on an actual database.

    For charts: There are some external JavaScript libraries that might be able to use data from tables, but I have never tried that myself.

    Regards,
    Tobias
