Hyper link is not clickable when excel macro is displayed on confluence page

I have an excel sheet in which I have hyperlinks which link to various web pages. I would like to display this excel sheet on a confluence page, so I have used excel macro to display it.

But when the excel sheet is displayed on the confluence page, the hyperlinks are visible but I am not able to click them and navigate to the respective page. Is there a way to these hyperlinks clickable, while the excel sheet is displayed on the cofluence page as an excel macro? If not could you please suggest some other alternative.

What version of the excel macro are you using? It looks like it is a known bug that was fixed in version 3.7.1 of the plugin: https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/browse/XL-54

Maybe @Bob Swift will have a better answer?

Install the snapshot and verify it solves your issue. If so, I can make it a release soon.

thanks for th help. BUt one question, the snapshot contains a jar file. How/where do I use/install that file?

Sorry, I am a liitle new to this.

You can use Confluence's plugin management console to install the plugin by uploading the jar file. Here are the instructions: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Installing+a+Plugin#InstallingaPlugin-Uploadingyourownplugin
