I had some issues recently with the speed of Confluence and hence I have deinstalled and deactived a couple of plugins. Obviously it also "hit" the file view macro. So I do only see the message "unknown macro: viewxls". Unfortunately I have not found a way to get the macro up and running again and was also not able to find a source for downloading.

Any ideas how this macro can be activated or installed again?

thanks and best regards,

The file view macros are part of the Office Connector plugin that comes installed in Confluence by default.

You should be able to get the macro working again by going in to Confluence's plugin management console and ensuring that the "Office Connector" and its plugin modules are listed as enabled.
