Once you have the DataView macro open, select the Excel file you wish to use for your data set. This can be attached to the page you are on, or any other Confluence page, but must me in 'xlsx' format

Accept the default parameters (unless you want to change the sheet in the Excel file you are using, or the date format) and click on 'Insert'.

Once this appears, click on 'Save' to create your page

Also note that the first time you set up DataView on your page, you might see a message saying that your data is being converted. This happens only the first time you set it up, and should resolve itself within a minute or two. Please see further explanation here.
