    Ok, I recently received an excel file of items that I wish to display. The spreadsheet of items has 19 fields/columns and a lot of rows or Entires.

    The spreadsheet has a primary key (unique identifier) but not labeled as such. The spreadsheet has everything needed, information wise, for a webpage

    There are also pictures and thumbnails that correspond to the primary key spreadsheet. The picture is the primary key +.jpg

    What is the easiest way to go about setting up a functional webpage? I'm not extremely comfortable with web programming but can feel my way through if pointed in the right direction. If someone can point me to a sample of tell me what type of programming will do what I want that would be great too!

    I have been using Macromedia DreamWeaver 8 recently and like this.

    I REALLY appreciate anyone here steering me in the right direction. Thanks so much!

    Not exactly sure how you define easiest and functional. I use MS-Excel 2003 and it does have an export as HTML function. It basically creates a frame set where each worksheet becomes a separate web page in the top frame. The bottom frame duplicates the worksheet selection tabs found in Excel. It generates a God awful amount of hidden code but it does seem to work.

    A working but not very pretty example can be found at:

    I just cut and paste the relevant part of the Excel spreadsheet into a Dreamweaver document. It automatically creates the code (without the crap that Excel does).
