Insert a document into App Sheet

I don't know if this is possible.

I want to create an Introduction Sheet for my App.  On this sheet I want to display what was in an excel spreadsheet that contained a list of values and descriptions used in the dashboard. 

This is strictly text.  I don't want to do anything with it other than display it in the formatted fashion it is currently in.

I have tried to copy and paste into a text object and that doesn't work.  All formatting is lost.

I tried to copy to Word or Wordpad first and then copy into the text object and that also did not work. 

So other than typing this all over again is there a way to do this?

I would use an extension called qWidget.  It gives you a coding window for HTML and CSS so will be able to format your text anyway you like.  Here's the link for the extension: http://doc.qwidget.mod.bz/download.default.html

Re: Insert a document into App Sheet

Hi Mark,

Are you looking to re-direct the user to a specific document from your app sheet?

If so you can make use of an extension to create a hyperlink to the document (Make sure its accessable) .
