You can attach files to a cell or range of cells from the Attachments panel.
Attach a File to Cells
Using the Attachments panel, you can attach files from your computer or create a placeholder for future uploads.
To attach a file to a spreadsheet:
- Select a cell or range of cells.
- Click the Upload File icon in the Attachments panel.
- Choose a file.
- Click Open.
Orange lines around cells indicate an attached file. If there are multiple references to an attachment, selecting a reference in the Attachments panel highlights the associated cells in your spreadsheet.
After you've uploaded an attachment or created a placeholder, you can create additional references to that attachment or placeholder:
- Select another cell or range of cells.
- Find your file or placeholder in the Attachments panel.
- Choose Add Reference from the menu.
Use the dropdown menu in the Attachments panel to rename, download, replace, or delete reference files.
You can show or hide the detailed references for each attachment using the Expand and Collapse icons. Use the Filter icon to show all document attachments or just files in a specific section.
