Can I import Excel files into Confluence?

I simply want to import Excel files into Confluence creating tables. This would be like Google Sheet imports which are very easy to do. Attachments are not imports, they are attachments. Thanks

Correct me if I'm wrong but if you just copy the cells from Excel and paste it into Confluence, does that not work? It's not import per-se.. But yeah, that should work.

Just tried this now - works like a charm (at least for the simple excel file I tried with no special formatting or formulas).

You have to create the Confluence docs, figure out the Excel cell size, insert the Confluence table, paste, re-edit, fix fonts, etc... Right, this is not an Import. It's listed as a "Powerful editor" that can't even import files.

Being able to do limited or basic copy and pasting is far from Importing.

Hi Mike,

There is no native Excel import into Confluence.  I can't say for certain, but I suspect it's due to the potential complexity of dealing with things like functions, pivot tables and the like.  There are Confluence plugins that can help though - here is a list of the Excel plugins for Confluence on the Atlassian marketplace:
