This example for the use of DPL is based on a copy of articles from the English wikipedia.

First we create a small table with some figures (taken from template calls of the original pages). We also add some meta data on popularity (hit rates of the articles).

  category=African Union member states
  includepage={Infobox Country or territory} dpl
  listseparators=\n{|class="wikitable sortable" \n!Country \n!Area \n!Population \n|#hits\n|-,\n|-\n|[[#%PAGE%|%PAGE%]]\n,\n|align=right|%COUNT%\n,\n|}

Country Area Population #hits
Cameroon 475,442 16,323,000 %COUNT%
Nigeria 923,768 133,530,0001 %COUNT%
Somalia 637,657 8,228,000 %COUNT%
Sudan 2,505,813 36,992,490 %COUNT%

Note that the country names in the small table link to the corresponding entry in the big table. In the History column of the big table we define a small image to be used as a "..more.." symbol; in the column on Religion we use the default (..→) We cut off contents at a convenient size in both columns. The last column contains some significant figures for each country. Its contents is formated in a separate template which replaces the original template during the creation of the report.
