Hello,

I'm new with javascript and would like to know if "javascript:function
could somewhat query a specific column name and records in a *.csv file (or) excel.xls file format.

I'm presently researching VRML modeling, I'm trying to integrate javascript so an Ascii file or Excel database so I could identify 3d ojects using existing "Anchor" node, (i.e. Anchor { url "javascript:function ????" description "My Model"

By "clicking" on the object the script would return an output value to
a frame or window.

My sample database would be:

description find_no remarks location
my stuff 1 testing south end
stove 2 too hot north end


example output to a frame or window when you click the object

-----------------------------------------------------
description| find_no |remarks| location |
------------------------------------------------------
stove 2 Too hot North end|


If know of anyone, I would appreciate an example.

Thank You.

Rick Meza

Javascript runs on the client, thus it can't access the server and the database. So you need a server-side language to do it.
