How to automate a table
I have been searching for the best solution for taking a csv file and flowing it into a table or the likes on a web page.
The specifics are:
Schedule that is updated every week having the same columns of info (date, location, etc) but most of the info changes every week. Instead of entering by hand all the info into an HTML table I want some sort of script that can read a delimited file and flow in the info automatically.
Can anyone help point me in the right direction?

If you're updating information continuously, you're better off building a website that uses a back-end database than relying on a spreadsheet.
You got it
I like writing useful tools in Autoit.
As your post sounds too easy, created a very simple tool which reads your CSV file and replaces delymeter with HTML table tags.
I have uploaded it on my site as daily promo.
You can find it and direct download it /there is info file too./
Or you can compile the source and make .exe by yourself.
May change and improve the code or wait me to post new version.
