View Full Version : excel html

04-28-2007, 03:05 PM
I had a question the other day (thread excel and bluevoda) which was answered thanks to the forum.

However, with my excel file now saved as an html file and having followed the html bluevoda tutorial, the server will not load my page.

I thought at first that i was linking incorrectly but all links to all other pages (those without excel html files involved) load just fine.

So the question is, what am i doing wrong with my excel file? So far i have been opening the html box in a blank bluevoda page and pasting into it from the source of my html excel page.

I then tried an i frame but i'm not sure if i'm doing that right either.

I realise this is getting long winded but if anybody could give me a simple explanation of how to get an excel worksheet onto my website, i'd be eternally grateful.

How exactly are you trying to add a excel spreadsheet to your website???, please provide a link so we can take a look.

Just as anther thought? Have you checked that the extension is .html? As I have found MS quite often saves it as .htm

my website is mikesfootballpages.com.

At the moment only the england and europe buttons on the fixed menu bar will take you anywhere.

So if you click england then try and access, say, the 1889 league table, nothing comes up.

I have copied and pasted the html from the source of my saved excel page and so in preview mode up comes the table. However, when published, the page will not load.

I don't understand why it works in preview mode but not when published.

Any ideas??

If i need to start again i will.

I should add that i have an excel - html converter, and that is why i have able to paste the source of my excel.html page

I dont know what a excel - html converter is, please provide a link. We can not be held liable for the reliability and functionality of third party softwares.

This is one of your links:

You do not need to include the public_html within any of your links.......

this.... mikesfootballtables.com ...equates to .. public_html

Many thanks for your responses. Your time and patience is much appreciated. Everything is in order except for one thing...the i frame.

So (hopefully) my last question.

I have my iframe in place. I have an excel file saved as a webpage and i have uploaded it to the public_html file using the FTP manager.

In the bluevoda builder i have written the following in the iframe http://www.mikesfootballpages.com/public_html/1891-92.htm

So, in an iframe do i need the public_html part? Should it be htm or html at the end?

Hi, the best way to check if all is ok is to go into c panel & find the XL file. Click on the file & the url will appear on the right hand side. Click on the url to see if it opens as a web page. If all is ok, copy this url to the iframe url field.
The only reason I say this, is the link in your post is not opening as a web page, so somthing is not right?.

Sorry, just to clarify, by c panel do you mean the FTP Manager? Whilst in the manager, under properties the location is given as

If i double click on it, it opens and displays exactly how i want it to display on the website in the i frame. I copy and pasted the above location into my i frame (having already tried it with the domainname), published and the result is as follows


So, does the file location look correct? Will my questions ever end?? Thanks again for your help.

Hmmm....well i've got round the problem by going around the public_html folder.

I assume that i was linking it incorrectly but still not sure how. Anyway, the page now shows, so thanks to anyone who has helped me out.

The FTP manager is not your cpanel. The C Panel is the main control panel for your website. Itís the same place where you create email accounts/sub domains/view stats & so on.
Your page should look something like this!
The link that was placed in the iframe url field should be this.

Also have a quick look to see if you have 2 iframes on that page. I maybe wrong, but it looked like it.

Good luck.
PS The only reason you may have a link like this http://www.mikesfootballpages.com/england/1891-92.html is if you had created another folder/directory called England. Then you would ftp the file to Public_html/England/

Thanks very much. Looks like that's cleared it up.
