The Office Connector plugin can be used for three purposes:

Importing a Word document as a wiki page

To import a Word document, click the "Doc Import" tab at the top of the page and select a Word document to be imported. If you just click "Import", the converted document will completely replace the existing page, apart from the title, so you should use it on an empty page. Click the "Advanced" button for more options: the most useful of these is to split large documents into several wiki pages according to the headers in the original document - the pages will become children of the current page.

Embedding a Word or Excel document in a wiki page

To embed a Word or Excel document in a wiki page, you first have to upload it as a file attachment - click the "Attachments" tab at the top of the page to do this. The {viewfile} macro is then used with the attachment's name to embed the document, for example: {viewfile:report.doc}. Excel spreadsheet containing graphs as well as tabular data may be embedded. Note that any embedded document cannot be edited within the wiki - you have to edit it within Office and attach it again.
