I want to be able to create a confluence page and link it to an excel document? I want so that any time the excel document is updated it will automatically be updated on the confluence page? So that I don't have to upload a new version of the excel document every time it's updated.

Hi @Misha Reece,

We can also suggest trying our app that is Table Filter and Charts for Confluence.

You can use its Table from CSV macro and connect Google Spreadsheets to your Confluence pages. Once the data in your spreadsheet is updated, the changes will be automatically transferred to Confluence. Furthermore, these recreated tables can be filtered, aggregated and visualized.

And you may also use the Table Spreadsheet macro and have basic Excel functionality (filters, cell formulas, conditional formatting, etc.) right in Confluence. The macro also supports csv/xlsx import/export.

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

No, the attachment in Confluence is the source of truth to Confluence, it does not reach out to other files to display them internally. 

You will need to find or write an app that could look at remote files (and then stop attaching files to Confluence when you're using the remote copy).

Or, you could write something external that attaches a new copy to Confluence whenever someone edits the original source doc.

Can you explain what you mean by write an app? Like create/code something?
