I want an easy way to transfer a Claris Works 4.0v4 for Mac database file to HTML either in tables or some other organized format. Claris' HTML export only works in word processing docs, and RTF translators don't retain any formatting. Thanks.

Check out HTML Transit at www.infoaccess.com they claim it can convert anything to HTML.  Maybe you can export into some format it supports.

Here's the fastest route I know ...

From Claris Works, export your data tables as Excel spreadsheets

Then, go to Microsoft's site (http://www.microsoft.com) and download the "Internet Wizard for Excel" (go the their Excel products page)

Finally (and it should be obvious by now), convert the Excel tables you exported from Claris into HTML tables.

You cannot download anything from MS's site without a product ID. I don't own any MS software!

You can actually download quite a lot from the Microsoft site without any ID.  You don't even need Microsoft software already.  You may simply need to give your name and e-mail as a refernce.

It doesn't need anything in the way of identification. Try
http://www.microsoft.com/excel/internet/ia/html.xla
save it to disk and go from there.
There are directions on the page

I get this message:

>>>HTTP/1.0 403 Access Forbidden (Read Access Denied - This Virtual
Directory does not allow objects to be read.)<<<

When I try to go to:
http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/msoffice/xl_ia_eula.idc

so... this does not help either. It seems that the file in question is an add-on for Excel which I do not have!

•Microsoft Excel 7.0 - Microsoft Windows® 95 •Microsoft Excel 5.0 - 32-bit Microsoft Windows (Microsoft Windows® NT 3.x) •Microsoft Excel 5.0 - 16-bit Microsoft Windows (Microsoft Windows® 3.x) •Microsoft Excel 5.0 - Apple® Macintosh® and Apple Power® Macintosh

The Internet Assistant for Microsoft Excel add-in file, HTML.XLA, should be saved in the Microsoft Excel Library directory. The path to this directory is different depending on which version of Microsoft Excel you are running.

For standalone Excel 5.0, you will find the Library directory directly under the EXCEL directory (for example, C:\EXCEL\LIBRARY on a Microsoft Windows system and My Computer:Microsoft Office:Microsoft Excel:Macro Library on an Apple Macintosh system).

For MS Office and Excel 7.0, you will find the Library directory under the MSOFFICE and EXCEL directories (for example, C:\MSOFFICE\EXCEL\LIBRARY).

I already stated that I do not have Excel, and this file will be of no use to me at all!

Save the spreadsheet as a text file.
Add this to your HTML file:
 
      <pre>     insert text from above file here  </pre>

The <pre></pre> tags allow inserting preformatted text into a web page.
Or, you can simply add a link to the text file containing the spreadsheet data.  All formatting is preserved when the browser opens a text file.
