Creating 3500 html pages

I have 3500 excel records. I need each record saved separately as an html document. Each page would be
appear the same except that the data would be different.
I would like to use my own preset page template

Is there a tool I can use to automate this process
or without cutting, pasting and saving 3500 pages.

Basically, take data from an ASCII or excel file, slot
it into a page template and save it with a unique name with
an html extension.

I could write you a simple program that will do it.  Send me your template and the excel file and I will see what I can do.

What you can do is that write a dll component using VB to which pass the xls file as argument.In that component you write code to convert the records to html.
PS:-You can access each cell of the excel sheet using VB

If you just need to view them online rather then actually needing the HTML, you might want to implement a dynamic system.  Maybe ASP or something so that it will generate a page for each entry only when a user requests it.  Basically, the user thinks that there are 3500 pages.
