XLSTrap

An XLSTrap functions just like the DOCTrap and PDFTrap. Whenever the spreadsheet is opened, an alert is generated. To create an XLSTrap follow the below steps.

    1. Copy the full URL for the GIFTrap.
    2. Select a cell and insert a Picture.
    3. Past the entire URL in the ‘File name’ field.
    4. Choose ‘Insert – Link to File’.
    5. Right click on the cell > Ensure boxes for ‘Enable background refresh’ and ‘Refresh data when opening the file’ are checked.
    6. Click OK. That’s it. The filename can be saved to whatever you want and placed in strategic locations such as dropbox sync folder, folder shares, etc.
