Error rendering macro 'viewxls' : Failed to retrieve attachment with name Data dictionary.xlsx
I tried to embed an excel file on the page via a macro but it gave me the above error. There is no issue with the filename and the excel sheet has been attached to the page
I figured out the issue here - You must click to download the latest/current version of the document before editing. I was clicking on the file name itself which was giving me the error after editing. I don't know why it makes a difference; seems like a bug to me.
Bestimmte Formatierungen, Gruppierungen, Filter oder auch Links zu anderen Excel-Tabellen innerhalb der ursprünglichen Excel-Tabelle können bei "Rendern..." zu Fehlermeldungen führen.
Zunächst empfehle ich immer, alle versteckten Zeilen/Spalten wieder einzublenden, sowie bestehende Gruppierungen zu entfernen. Außerdem sollten alle vorhandenen Filter entfernt werden.

I am also facing this issue. I have an existing page with an attachment and using the excel macro. I downloaded the file, made some changes, saved. I uploaded and attached the file to the page in Confluence. When I view the page now it shows the error "error rendering macro view.xls".
I do not have underscores or any special characters in my file or page name.
Hi @Oshada Ranasinghe - welcome to the community!
It looks like this question was answered in the community a while back. There are a couple of reasons this may be happening. Do you happen to have a special character in the page title or file name? That may be why you are getting this error. Try removing the special characters (or even numbers) in your page title or file name and try again. If this does not resolve your problem, please let me know and I'll try to help more.
