Word macro doesn't display the list of attached documents

I attached a simple Word document to the page and then I tried to insert the Office Word macro to display the document but the list of attachments is empty.  What's up?

Also, I love the Excel macro, why is it going away?

Did you attach the Word Document to the same page that you are placing the Office Word Macro?

Yes

When I run into problems with the Office Word Macro, I do one of two things:

  1. Office Word Macro on same page as Attachment
    1. Go to Edit
    2. Double click on the Office Word Macro
    3. In the Page Name, re-enter the name of the page you are on
    4. The word.doc will populate to the screen
  2. Office Word Macro on separate page as Attachment
    1. Go to Edit
    2. Double click on the Office Word Macro
    3. In the Page Name, find the page that your attachment is located
    4. The word.doc will populate to the screen

 

NOTE: The Office Word Macro only accepts files that are named .doc or .docx, so be careful when you rename files within Confluence. 

 

Hope this fixes the problem! 

 

Thanks
