    Instructions in Yellow Bar to "Post a small Excel sheet"

    Hello friends,

    I'd appreciate someone telling me exactly HOW to "Post a small Excel sheet (not a picture) showing realistic & representative sample data" as directed in the Yellow Bar at top of screen.
    I know how to attach a spreadsheet and how to take a picture of a spreadsheet and insert it, but I cannot figure out how to "Put a small Excel sheet" on the page to demonstrate a problem for which I am seeking help for a solution.

    Thanks!

    If you know how to attach a spreadsheet, then you don't need any further instructions, as that's what you are being asked to do in the banner. You will see from the instructions at the end of the message that attaching the workbook is being described. Nowhere does it ask you to put anything "on the page".

    Thanks for the replies. I just wasn't sure if it was possible to actually insert a "small" working spreadsheet.

    Not a working spreadsheet, no, but there is a link to an add-in I use in the penultimate paragraph of this blog: http://excelmatters.com/excel-forums/

    You can use the BB Code options on this forum

    They key to small (taken from the banner):

    (10-20 rows, not thousands...)

    why? becasue it's nigh-on impossible to check thousands of rows to make sure that an offered solution is actually working
