    Nothing immediately wrong there. Can you give me a link to your page so I can take a look and debug it please?

    p.s. Remove TableTools and ZeroClipboard - they are legacy software replaced by Buttons and Select.

    Answer ✓

    I'm not sure what buttons.dataTables.min.js in line 19 is. Try removing the line. It might be conflicting with dataTables.buttons.min.js which I believe is the file you want to load. Maybe @allan can clarify the difference. You can also open both files to see what they are.

    This example uses extend: 'selected' and it only has dataTables.buttons.min.js.

    Still got the error.. but when I change extend to extends the error is gone however the selected value on datatable is not read.

  • mmangayammangaya Posts: 4Questions: 1Answers: 0

    Got it.. Got confused in the select.datatables.min.js instead of datatables.select.min.js

    Thank you for sharing the example. :smile:

    Ah yes, the {extension}.dataTables.js files are basically redundant. They are only used for npm importing. In general use the download builder to make sure you get all the right files.

    Nice spot there Kevin!
