Building page in Confluence and want to use the Table Spreadsheet Macro to allow the team to view/edit a large excel file verses emailing to everyone or them emailing the changes asking me to make them.
Will import smaller files just fine but the page itself is timing out before the file is loaded.
Hi Tiffany: There is a size setting for attachments in confluence so I need more information before I can help you.
1) How is the excel file configured as a spreadsheet or CSV?
Is the file attached to the page in confluence?
2) Are you getting any error messages.
These information might help:
When a file is uploaded, Confluence will attempt to extract and index its text. This allows people to search for the content of a file, not just the filename. This process is quite memory intensive and can cause out of memory errors when very large files are uploaded. Confluence has a number of safeguards to prevent this happening:
If Confluence stops extracting text, only a portion of the file's content will be searchable.
Hi @Tiffany Myers ,
Indeed as @Carla Ann Rowland has explained, your file is just too big to be processed both by your browser and by Confluence itself. We understand the case but, unfortunately, Confluence wasn't designed to serve as a database.
The only workaround will be to split your file into several smaller files and store them on different pages as different attachments.
