I have a table in excel, but when i copy the data from excel and paste it in confluence page, its taking the data as an image. However, i would like to add the data as a table in confluence.
I have a big table, and now i dont want to type everything again in confluence as I would like to continue to track it in confluence rather than excel.
Could anyone share how this can be done ?
Is there really not a more intuitive way of moving something as basic as a table?
Everyone is well versed in creating documents in Microsoft Office products. The default behaviour should be for a list created in Excel to paste as a table in Confluence. It's completely impractical to create a table of hundreds of lines in order to paste a table from another application.
As with a lot of these online applications, the functionality is shoehorned in making it a bespoke task, rather than supporting the majority application seamlessly.
Is there anyone who doesn't expect a seamless copy and paste operation to just work?
On my side, the problem appeared about two weeks ago. The cells are copied correctly, but there is an additional image pasted in the bottom cell:
I am using the "new" editor. It worked in the new editor a few weeks ago.
I understand there are workarounds, but it should JUST WORK, without workaround! As @T Foster said.
And I don't see how it could be a browser thing...
But anyway,I am using Chrome 114.0.5735.134
To resolve another issue, I just ran the "Restore Settings to their Original Defaults" option on Chrome. That resolves the problem entirely (no work-around needed).
However, if that doesn't work, the work-around below is still functional:
This is a bug/feature that must have just started- As you stated, copied Excel cells now paste into Confluence as a picture instead of text (I'm using the Chrome browser).
Here's the work-around I was able to use (instead of PPT):
1. Copy the table from Excel
2. Paste it into Word
3. Copy it from Word
4. Paste it into Confluence
This helps retain Excel's "text" when pasting into confluence.
The macro allows you to work with fully functional Excel spreadsheets right in Confluence. You’ll be able to use cells’ formulas, filters, conditional formatting, etc., create pivot tables and charts from the page view and edit mode.
The Table Spreadsheet macro is available for Cloud and Server/Data Center.
Hi @Juan Fuentes ,
Do you have the mentioned Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app installed for your instance? Can you see other macros that are provided by this app?
You may check, for example, Table Filter, Pivot Table, Table Transformer macros.

@Prabhamani Why don't you directly attach your excel files to a confluence page instead of copying/pasting data?
Our app, Polaris spreadsheet allows you to embed an existing excel and CSV files in a confluence page and directly edit it.
It offers full editing capabilities for excel files and provides an advanced view mode that allows you to use filters, scroll, and find. Please check the details.

Hi @shetty ,
copy & paste from Excel works fine for me. I do the following:
