Excel attachment is not available in child pages

Jinson AF I'm New Here Apr 13, 2021

I have an xlsx file attached to one of the parent page of confluence. I want to show different pages of the excel in different child pages. Please let me know how to fix this issue. In excel macro, in page name I have given master page name and the excel is available in File Name dropdown. But when I try to preview i am getting below error. I think excel macro is looking for the file in the child page and not in parent page

Error rendering macro 'viewxls'

The viewfile macro is unable to locate the attachment "5.0 Health Monitor Plan.xlsx" on this page

The version of Confluence is 7.5.2

Hi @Jinson AF 

I tried for me and it worked well.

  • Do you use a "Worksheet Name"? 
  • Does the error occurs already in the macro preview or only in the page view mode?

Thank you very much for your reply

The issue is resolved. Actually the issue was with my parent page name!!

I had a / in my parent page name which was causing issue. Once that is removed the attachment is getting displayed properly
