Paste content from Word/ppt/excel


I´m trying to paste copied MS Word/Excel content into a simple Confluence table. I tried it with "cmd+V" or left mouse and paste, but I get this notification and nothing more happen. "Page not found" and "The page you were trying to reach could not be found...."

Anybody an idea?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Fatma,

I tested your problem with text and images, and I was not able to replicate the "Page not found" result. Have you checked the permissions to this table/page?


Could you maybe attach a print screen of this issue?

There is no need to create table first in confluence page, Ctrl+A in sheet and past into confluence page. 



I tried at my end and its working fine.




Hi Hemant,

thank you. But there is an existing table on confluence and I want to fill some of its cell with input from other files, such as powerpoint or excel. This is the reason, why I said "content". And it doesn´t work with paste option sad



Hi Carlos,

thank you for your support. Everytime when I try to paste something on a confluence field, this notification appears. not only me, my collegue has the same problem.


thank you!




Problem solved. It was an IE issue. It works with chrome.
