Xcel doc to Html web site. Can you help?

My wife would like to put an Excel doc on her html based web site. She does not require this to be updatable just viewable.

I have searched the web but the only references I can find seem complex and relate to the doc being updatable.

Any ideas of the script I would need? Thank you.

Can't you use Save As and choose HTML - import the file into the relevant page. Office generates rather untidy HTML with a lot of extraneous stuff, so it will need some trimming.

brundle, thanks for the reply. Of all the choices to 'Save As'; HTML is not one of them. I have tried most of the Save options without success.

This will convert .xls to HTML click here or you could copy/paste the document into Word and see if that will convert it.

brundle, I used the site and it stated that it was coverted to html. The folder is 'zipped' and contains three files mine is called 'IPSWICH_PUBS.html'.

How do I use the file & with what script? And there was me thinking it was going to be easy!

Any further help please?

Upload the page to the website and create a link to it. Or import the whole file into an existing page.

The HTML, not the zip.

If the spreadsheet wasn't too large (screen size) why not just take a screenshot of it and upload the picture.

brundle, cheers again.

I always test anything prior to loading onto my wife's web site on my computer on a spare page off line. I cannot get this to work.

Any ideas of the script run it?

Thank you.

Thanks MAJ, but it is about 4 screen lengths long.

That would also render it inaccessible, of course.

Why not either convert it to PDF and make it available for download or convert it to XML and incorporate that?
