ok, so i need to publish (online) a list of students and attributes of those students. i was thinking of creating an excel spreadsheet, however, someone mentioned that i may want to create an access database instead. since the excel or access file will be updated locally a few times a week, i would need it to be easily updated online as well. i'm not too experienced with dynamic sites (yet), so i'm not sure how i could do this. what do you guys think?

excel? access? xml? mysql?

i would rather not recreate the html page itself, just the data file, and have it load with the new info.

I know that Access can create data access pages that behave like websites. Creating all in access and uploading Access files to your server. All in one application.

Hope it helps.
