    Tobias!

    is there a way to import a table created in Google Docs?

    If so:

    1) can it be spreadsheet?
    2) do we have to download the spreadsheet to our PC, and then import? if so, what formats?
    3) Could we use a Google Docs URL? If so, what are the settings needed?
    4) Is there a way to have a dynamic table appear using this plugin, for example... make changes on a Google Docs spreadsheet, and have it display through this plugin.

    Thanks so much

    Hi,

    thanks for your question.

    Unfortunately, a direct usage of a Google Spreadsheet (through using the URL or by dynamically inserting it) is not possible. (For the latter case, I believe there's a "native" way of including a document into a webpage, similar to the embed code of a YouTube video.

    What you can however do: Export the Spreadsheet to CSV format. (I'm not sure if this is directly possible from Google Docs, so it might be necessary to first export to XLS and then export to CSV from within Excel.)
    That CSV file can then be imported into WP-Table Reloaded.

    Regards,
    Tobias
