I need a HTML page which will have buttons on it and when clicked can take  me to some excel sheets.
I should be able to edit the text on the button as well as link the button to a excel sheet in the local machine.

Hi are you looking for

<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Push me!">

This will generate a button with the text Push me! which opens an Excel document called excel.xls

Hope this helps

Hi bsharath

If you want 20 buttons all you need is copy the code above and change the variables to suit your 20 documents. Unfortunately I don't provide hosting servcies myself, but you may want to have a look at the EE Webhosting section for some guidance on good ISPs and how to go about it.

Not knowing what exact layout you need, designing a page will be difficult beyond html code, what name does this page need to have for your users to find it, does it sit within an existing www or does it need to link to another and so on. But assuming that you only have one page and that your Excel documents sit in a subfoldeer called xls, we call the page index.htm

The code for index.htm would create a simple page, white background and 4 rows of 5 buttons:

<p><FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel1.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 1">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel2.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 2">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel3.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 3">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel4.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 4">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel5.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 5">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel6.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 6">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel7.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 7">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel8.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 8">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel9.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 9">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel10.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 10">
<p><FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel11.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 11">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel12.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 12">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel13.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 13">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel14.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 14">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel15.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 15">
<p><FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel16.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 16">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel17.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 17">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel18.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 18">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel19.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 19">
<FORM METHOD="LINK" ACTION="excel20.xls">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Button 20">

Obviously you can make this prettier with logos and tables, but as a basic page it'll suffice.

hope this helps
