    Post Issues attaching multiple documents types to a single cell

    I am a novice to excel however I am attempting to learn. I am creating a equipment and vehicle inventory list and using this list I would like to attach multiple documents into a single cell. Including receipts for maintenance or parts and labor. I would also like to attach the insurance info for each vehicle or piece of equipment. What I am running into is adding multiple documents IE: PDF, Word and photo's into a single cell. I have my list broken down by machine or vehicle and individual categories for receipts, insurance, financing and so on. Any help would be appreciated. I spent hours trying to read online how to make this work.

    Hi and welcome

    When you say "attach multiple documents into a single cell" do you mean the actual documents or hyperlinks to the files somewhere on a drive/network?

    Beth, thank so much for your response. I am actually trying to attach the documents to the spreadsheet. Is that possible or do you have another idea?

    Whilst you CAN attach other files to an Excel workbook it's not really what Excel is for or what it's good at.
    You will certainly struggle to get multiple documents attached to a single cell.

    My suggestion would be, use links to the files, rather than the files themselves, for things like insurance docs and receipts and put them i a cell each (perhaps designate an area to be a list?)
    Then just slap a pic of the vehicle in its own designated area.

    Beth.
