Including attachment is not available OOTB. And how do you want the attachments to be put into an Excel?

Jira to Excel regular import is directly available in Jira as explained here

You could use SOAP or REST to load the filter of your choice and generate Excel using Excel Automation and embed the attachments as well. But this requires some coding.

The Excel spreadsheet may not be the best format for this, due to its tabular format. (How would you fit large pictures, or pictures with varying dimensions to unquely size cells without destroying the table layout?)

If the PDF output format is acceptable, the PDF View Plugin can export all issue attachments to PDF documents. Also, it can display the image type attachments directly in the document (see a sampe below).
