I want to embed an Excel file into a page, so that it may be edited there. It is not important to actually see the content of the Excel sheet on the page.
When I select Insert Select content/Confluence content/Excel, then Insert Office Excel macro, then under File Name, it says: "No appropriate attachments". Where do I populate the dropdown so that there is 'appropriate attachments' to select from?

Hello Peter, good afternoon!
I think you have two situations:
For the first one:
You can edit the document in Confluence if you use the Macro Office Excel.
And it will show to you the option to Edit Document, it open a Excel File and you can edit the file.
Observation: I think you need use the Internet Explorer to work, but I'm not sure about it.
To the second
is that what happened to you?
If it is that.. you have a workaround:
Simply Dragging and Dropping the excel file from your local file browser into the page being edited, will bypass this behavior and allow the excel macro to load the file.
And resolution is:
Open a file Browser window and navigate to the downloaded file
Drag the .xls or .xlsx file into the page being edited
Copy all information from the page
Delete the page and create a new one
Lemme know if I helped you.
