    But, can I attach an excel spreadsheet to the form and have the respondent upload a completed spreadsheet via the form response?

    Hi,

    You can add a hyperlink to your form that will allow the user to download the Excel file. However, this Excel file should be uploaded to a web server. In this way, once the user downloaded the file, they can fill it up.

    You need to use the Text tool to create a hyperlink. Here's a screen animation on how to create an external link inside the form:

     

    After filling it, they can save it and then upload it to your form. Your form should have a File Upload field on it. The user can then submit the form with the uploaded file.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
