Hello everyone I am new to JS and it has been years since I worked with JAVA or HTML but I'm getting back into it for a pet project of mine and could really use some help getting past this small problem in front of me.
ok so here is my issue:
I have an HTML page that will read information from Cells in an MS Excel spreadsheet then will write them to the screen.
This works if I run it localy and use the direct path like C:\MyFolder\ExcelFile.xls
BUT if I try and access the MS Excel spreadsheet from a shared network drive like \\TheComputerName\MyFolder\ExcelFile.xls the JS will not read the file.
SO... I tried to leave the HTML file and the Excel file localy and then tried to open teh HTML file from a shared computer like \\TheComputerName\MyFolder\MyWebFile.html but that wouldn't work ether.
NOW my question to you guys is how can I get my HTML file to read the Excel file from a Network Shared location...
....How do open the HTML file from a Shared computer (while still correctly reading the Excel Spreadsheet)
Please help (and use small words and code for my little brain) and thank you.
PS I was wondering if this could even be done in JS, I was wondering if I need to do this in PHP instead which I have NO idea at all.
