Question How do I put Excel file on my webpage so others can download it

This must be SO basic, but I've not done it b4 and cannot find out how to put an excel doc on a web page so that visitors can choose to download it.

I've used WS_FTP to transfer the .xls to the page folder, but nothing appears onscreen when you view it in your browser.

Default Re: How do I put Excel file on my webpage so others can download it

I'm not entirely sure I get what you mean... but here's my best guess from what you're saying...

you have some web space.

on that space you have a page.


and an excel document

you can either make a link in the index file

<a href="http://mysite.com/... / path /...example.xls">click here to get example.xls</a>

or, (if you plan to share lots of files, you could put the excel document in a folder of it's own without an index page so that when people browse there they see a file listing
