I'm adding a simple table into our project's wiki page and I'm just wondering whether there is way for the table to have the auto-fill capability like Excel. For ex., auto generating index for all the rows, or fill specific column a same value for all rows.

On the Rich-Text Editor of wiki I cannot do nothing except manual input, but I found this markup format and wondering if I can do some tricks there. So any other tips of of efficiently editing wiki pages will be helpful too.

EDIT: Did a little Google and looks to me this wiki markup is not standard over all wikis, but is there any common tool or script people use?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Wiki markup is just text, so being a wizard with a good text-editor makes for extremely efficient editing, even with tables. Vim, Emacs, Notepad++ I guess, etc. Perhaps not the tip you wanted, but a tip nonetheless :-) . – Daniel Andersson Jun 18 '13 at 6:08
I see. Just want to know how wiki gurus are editing them. Thanks! – Derek Jun 18 '13 at 23:14
