How can we improve Excel for Mac?

Please add a function to insert .pdf documents into excel speadsheets

I'd like to be able to add embed a .pdf document in a spreadsheet, and view it as either an icon or a link to the embedded document.

Thanks.

    I have the same issue.Please , please add a feature in Excel which can embed a pdf file using a Mac

    I agree. Adding a PDF to an Excel document that allows opening in Preview is a must feature. Makes the workbook a container for PDFs and extremely useful. The apps in Mac are just folders - it seems adding this functionality is more than doable.

    John, At the moment you can imbed a PDF, just drag it into the worksheet, but it only shows/ can access the first page which is the same result as your jpeg workaround. It’s about embedding a full multi page document.

    Work around- Screen shot of pdf (Shft - Cmd - 4). Saved as jpg. Inserted jpg into new Word doc. Embedded word doc into Excel.
    Few extra steps but works.

    Do it! Add it, i just upgraded Mac 2011 to 2019 for this feature specifically and surprised to know it isn't available!

    Can't believe this isn't present in Mac version of Excel - absolutely crucial for business/professional use.

    It would be incredibly useful if the functionality to embed a PDF document into Word and Excel could be available to MAC users as this is such a useful feature and is frustrating that yet again MAC users are disadvantaged in the capabilities of the software. This function is very useful when running a project.

    Please add this option, we need in our work reporting reporting and sharing file for specific functions and link. hyperlink useful only if you are using dropbox, but using google drive with restricted rights not possible.

    It's pain ********** in 2019. My excel file cannot be distributed to OSX users, it's a lost of revenue

    Insane that Mac users have been ignored for this function - please update so that we can embed PDFs to Excel/Work asap!!

    ADD THIS OPTION TO EMBED A PDF---Mac is NOT the same as PC versions. How this has slipped by for so long is asinine.
