How to create a file in a Confluence file share page using Excel VBA?

I already have an Excel spreadsheet that has VBA code to extract page data and create a file in a local folder of my choosing - and that works fine.

What I want to do is to create that same file, and write to it, using VBA within this same spreadsheet, but directly onto our Confluence Fileshare (not Jira).

For local file creation it is simple, with just a few lines of code


Has anybody done this and can share the VBA code please? Or suggest how I should do it?

At present, I will have to manually upload my locally created files to the fileshare

Apologies - fileshare was just a general term.


I mean to be able to create a file and write to it on the fly in a shared folder - so that others can then read it.

Same as I can do to my local laptop/PC drive (but then have to upload to that same shared folder so they can read it)
