Thanks guys for the replies, but it doesn't help much..
I'm a beginner, and don't know what is PHP...
I'll tell you exact what i'm trying... its as simple as a form in HTML as the front end, and EXCEL as the database which will be on a shared drive, now this data will be accessible the front end by means of the HTML front end.
Its kinda complicated but I need a solution, don't have funds for a SQL server or any other database.
You can not use your excel database spreadsheet online, the only thing you can do is save your excel spreedsheet as an HTML and post your database online for viewing only.
You have two opition since your a beginner like myself.
Opition #1 is pay for an ONLINE database service provider such as http://www.trackvia.com/
, google docs, http://creator.zoho.com/
, www.Caspio.com , (only problem, they are monthly subscription service)
Opition #2 is to hire an PHP/MySQL programmer to design an online database. (Expect to pay for what you expect from your application requirement) If you want something simply I have found someone who is going to do one for me for US$50.00 (i have be qutoted anywhere from $1,500 to $2,000) for an application that will do everything that you can think of.
