    This doesn't have to be secure or anything. I just want to have an Excel file on a webserver and be able to access it from a webrowser and update it. Sure, I can put one on a server somewhere, download it, make changes, and ftp it back to the server, but I wanted to do it all in a webrowser. Just go to a URL, make changes and click save or just close it or whatever and it'll save on the server. Is there an easy way to do this?

    Thanks,
    Cory

    I would be surprised if it worked that way.
    In a WAN/LAN enviroment, you would put that file in a server share folder and allow updates via permissions. On a web page, I don't think you can.

    You could convert it to a MS Access database and use .ASP pages to update it. :)

    hmm... this is on a Linux server. Can I do that on Linux? All I usually do is ftp to the server - so I don't have access to the actual server to setup anything. I was sort of looking for something a little easier.

    Any other ideas?
