When asking questions on this forum, it's often helpful to attach a copy of your workbook.  This makes it easier for us to understand the question and allows us to use your own work as an example.

 

Quite a few people have had issues attaching files, so here are some instructions on how to do it:

  1. If you are replying to a post, click More Reply Options when replying.

  2. Click Browse.

  3. Select the file that you want to upload and click Open.
     
  4. Click Attach This FileIf you do not do this, the file will not be attached.

The file should then be attached and appear in a box below your post.

You can click Add to Post if you want your attachment to appear in a specific place in your post, but otherwise it will automatically appear at the bottom.

 

If there's a very long delay after clicking Attach This File, it is probably because the file is very big and you may need to be patient.  If a small file seems to be taking a very long time, try clicking Attach This File again.

 

Important Note: Files cannot be uploaded if the file name contains an apostrophe. For example, Jonathan's.xlsx could not be uploaded. To solve this, simply remove any apostrophes from the file name. Jonathans.xlsx would upload without any problems.
