Default Storing and displaying data in HTML

I would like to ask if anyone can suggest a better solution to the way I am currently managing data on a website.

I have an Excel document with data I'm displaying in an HTML web page. The Excel document is quite simple, the only formula is one column which calulates averages from other columns.

To display data from this Excel document on my web page, I am copying the desired cells from Excel and pasting them to an HTML page in FrontPage. This creates a new table which I then need to reformat but it works ok.

Ideally I would have a table which calls data from the Excel document automatically so that I need only update the Excel document to update the web page.

I am on a Linux server so no asp support and my understanding of working with data online is somewhat limited, but I can usually figure out what I need to.

I'm not attached to Excel as a means to store the data. it just came to mind as a simple and effective way to keep a managable record of all the data I will be collecting. I thought of using mysql but have no idea how to display the data on an HTML page or how to easily enter and modify the data within.

Any tips most welcomed.

well I have an Excel tutorial over here and it says you can export an excel page directly to html instead of converting via frontpage and that might make it all a bit easier.
Another option is live data implementation like you mentioned but I'm not a specialist in that way.

I hope I helped "something" because I dont think I sound like an excel programmer

anyway, good luck with it and I hope you get some more response now.
