    Hi,

    Does anyone know whether it's possible to attach a MS Excel spreadsheet on a post, or do I need to use a link to a public download space such as Dropbox?

    Kind regards,
    Matt.

    I just have adobe reader unfortunately. I found a way to resize the sheet in Excel and export to PDF but vBulletin didn't the filesize. I have used a Dropbox link now.

    Cheers for the help:)

    Do you just want to show the data could you just 'print screen' then paste into Paint, save as a JPEG and post it as a photo?

    if you want to manipulate data then obviously this is a rubbish idea!

    It's a big sheet so I think the resolution wouldn't be there in a jpeg. All sorted now:)

    You could use Google Docs and just share the link
