Hi,

I'm building a web page locally  on my macbook pro desktop.  I have data that I'd like to display one row at a time.  Does anyone have suggestions on where to start?  Do I need a php server for this?  Or can this be done with quering just plain text, cvs or an excel sheet, say j-query?

Thanks in advance

My questions:
You have no knowledge of web development whatsoever?
What do you mean by: "... display one row at a time"? Like a table?
What do you want to do with the HTML page itself?

If all you want is an HTML representation of the data that you have you might find the Excel feature "Export to HTML" kind of useful... if you're trying to build something with some logic then it will require a bit more knowledge.

Yes, I have some development background, but its been a few years.  So, I'm not sure whats new out there that may have simplified things in the last 5 years.  I was thinking something in j-query off hand, but maybe something else.  I hate to be vague, but looking for some direction working from my local hard drive.

So, yes, looking for logic. I'd like to click next button and it goes to the next row, xml or whatever data parsed on the sheet.
Many Thanks,.

I should add that I'm working from a mac which is new to me.  So, I didn't think installing IIS was good option.  That's why I was thinking of some drop and go code, like j-query.

You can use jQuery or even one of the new client-side MVC frameworks like AngularJS.
It won't require any web server but it requires "web development" skills.

So if you have time and want to play with it, AngularJS will ease a lot that work, and no jQuery will be necessary.

You still have to get the data from a static file, parse it if it's not in JSON format and feed the view.
In fact it's pretty easy if you know how to do it.

Right now I don't have the time to write you this code but have a look at AngularJS demos like here for example:
