How to copy data from excel to confluence in table format

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 ?

You can also use the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app: it contains the CSV macro and you will be able to import tables easily from CSV or TSV data sources (URL or attached files).

Hey @Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_

Hi @shetty ,

copy & paste from Excel works fine for me. I do the following:

  • create an empty table in Confluence with the number of rows your excel table has
  • Select the data in Excel and copy
  • Put the cursor into the first cell and paste


@Thomas Schlegel 

Will try 

Thank You
