Updating an excel spreadsheet in a frames environment
Posted on 2004-10-06
This is a bit of an odd question so bear with me. I wasn't sure which language would
be the best to do this in, so I posted this here. I have a webpage set up in frames:
In frame B, I've loaded an excel spreadsheet. In frame A, I have
simple window that allows the user to enter a single value and submit it.
What I need to do is take the value the user submits from frame A, and enter it into
a cell in the excel spreadsheet in frame B. That's it.
I realize the user 'could' just alter the value in the spreadsheet directly in frame b.
However, I'm simplifying the question a little. This question is a small part of a larger application,
and the people I'm building it for want the top frame for workers to use, and bottom frame
for viewing only. Gotta give 'em what they want.
