Creating a Table within wpDataTables
Creating a Table from an Existing Data Source (e.g. .csv, .xls, Google Sheet)
Please note that when you insert a wpDataTable into a Text Block using the icon within formatting toolbar (), you will be presented with a View option for that table.
These views add additional code into the shortcode value, which may cause unintended results regarding the ability to search within your published table.
It is our recommendation to remove the additional "table_view= " code, so that the call is only for the table itself.
