    The Chandoo.org Forum now has the facilities to upload files directly into a post.
    Simply use either the Media icon in the Edit menu or the Upload a File Button next to the Save Changes button


    In the Chandoo.org Blog or here in the Forums you can still upload files using a Free Internet based File Sharing website.

    File sharing websites

    http://www.dropbox.com/ (Recommended)

    http://docs.google.com or https://drive.google.com/start#home

    Please don't post a picture of your worksheet.

    Once you have uploaded the file, the web site should give you a Download Link.
    Copy the link and paste it in a post with details of what you are trying to achieve.

    For Sharing Pictures

    You can link pictures using the Insert/Edit Picture in the Edit Menu
    or share an image from a free image sharing site

    When Posting data online always remember to anonymise the data, especially names or data if it is commercial or confidential in nature.

    Make sure with some of these sites (Google & Skydrive) that you set access permissions to the file/directory to a sufficient level to enable the public to have access to your file. Otherwise we can't help you.

    If you apply a password to the file, make sure that you post it with your question and the files link.

    Posting a Small Block of data in a Post

    If it's a small block of data, you can copy directly from excel and paste here, putting a [CODE=TEXT] tag above the text and a [/CODE] below your data.


    Code (TEXT):

    Name        Start         Finish    Score
    Task 1       15-Jan      3-Feb   5
    Task 2       12-Mar     2-Apr    6
    Task 3       16-Apr      5-May  8
    You may need to adjust the spacing, but the [code=TEXT] symbol prevents the forum from removing your extra spaces.

    Posting a Small Block of VBA Code in a Post

    Select the Code in the VBE

    [CODE]Paste it here

    Code (vb):
    Sub Test()
    'My First App
    A = MsgBox("Welcome to the Chandoo.org Forums", vbOKOnly, "My First App")
    End Sub
