Excel macro not inserting or saving contents of excel file Edited

Hi Everyone,


I am trying to insert Excel Macro into a Confluence page. The excel file is attached to the page, and I can see it in the dropdown of the Excel macro.

However, it does not display me a preview of the excel file and on clicking the "insert" button, does not do anything.

Tried looking for solutions online but nothing seems to work.

Appreciate your help.

Is the Excel spreadsheet already attached to the page; if not then upload it and then insert the Excel Macro.

Yes the excel sheet is already attached, and I can see it in the dropdown in the Macro.

However, I cannot see the preview and on clicking "insert" nothing happens.

Clarifying points:

1) How many confluence macros are on this confluence page--- there is a cap. If it is 10 or less then that is not the issue.

2) when setting up the criteria for the Confluence Excel Macro and it does not show the preview of the file then that is an issue. This snap of the insert screen shows configuration of the confluence macro--the preview pane arrows have to be clicked on to load preview. So of below snapshots--what do you see or is it after you publish the confluence page you see nothing?

After the criteria of the Confluence macro is complete and grey place holder is displayed until you publish the confluence page (see below)

Thanks for your response. 

It is working now. I was missing the step of clicking the Preview arrows.

Thanks, I will mark it as answered.

You are welcome! :-)

Hi Carla, I am also having a similar issue but nothing happens when I click on the Preview arrows or the Insert button
