How can I use a CSV file to add dynmaic content to web pages in SharePoint?

Posted on 2011-05-12

I would like to add information to different web pages in SharePoint depending on variable data that it picks up from a CSV file (see attached XLS file for an example).

I am dealing with lots of devices that support different features.  I want to create a different webpage in SharePoint that talks about each feature.  I then want add a list of compatible devices to it too.  Instead of manually adding these devices, I would like SharePoint to look at a CSV file and determine which models are supported based on information found from it.  How can I do this?

    Is this a one time thing or a continual process?

    How about loading the csv data into a SharePoint list and then display the information from the list using a view?

    A continual process.

    Would using a SharePoint list work for you? If so, you can script the update/refresh of list using the Client Object Model (SP2010) or write a locally run PowerShell Script for SP2007.
