Subject Excel in, XML out
Date Wed, 18 Oct 2000 18:17:39 GMT
Lotsa questions about Excel today. Here's mine. Can I use an MSExcel
spreadsheet as an input source and transform it into XML? How would one do

Here's why: users could plug data into a spreadsheet (which is more
people-friendly) which could then be output to an XML config file, to drive
dynamic website generation.

In other words, if you need to change the set-up of a website, you change a
column in the spreadsheet. Cocoon transforms this into an XML config file,
which then drives cascading change throughout the system.

Thanks for any help.
