how would i take data from a database and display it into a fact page for example:

i have a database or spreadsheet full of many different cars that have lots of information about their colour, ammount of doors, model, etc. how would i display this data on my site in certain places without it looking like a database or spreadsheet eg.

nissan micra

manufacturer: nissan

colour: silver
red
green

doors: 5

how many wheels: 4

i want my data to be displayed in this format.

Hi Justin,

You have a few options here:

eg:
  • Excel using Google Docs

  • Copying and pasting Excel with HTML formatting onto a page.

  • Zoho databases which have a limited free subscription and are interactive so that a user can put in criteria and get specific info.

  • a table using a text file and CSS for styling

OK,

Create your spreadsheet the way you wish to display your data.

Save as Web Page (*.htm;*.html). (Excel option)

Copy the page and paste it into Notepad then copy the notepad data and paste it into a text widget through the html button onto a test page.

Let me know when you have done this and publish your site let me know the address and I can then suggest the fine tunings.

or

You can send the excel sheet to me directly and I will process it for you to simply paste into your page

You can send it to: gop@designscent.com
