calculating in tables - Macromedia Exchange Dreamweaver Extensions

Hi Group, Can anyone advise me whether there is an extension that will allow calculations within tables as with excel? I have a couple of tables of results that change every couple of weeks, and I have to update them manually, it would be so helpful if the rows and columns would self total. Thanks in advance to all those that take the time to reply. David...

    Default calculating in tables

    Hi Group,

    Can anyone advise me whether there is an extension that will allow
    calculations within tables as with excel?

    I have a couple of tables of results that change every couple of weeks, and
    I have to update them manually, it would be so helpful if the rows and
    columns would self total.

    Thanks in advance to all those that take the time to reply.

    Default Re: calculating in tables

    There are several ways you could do it.

    The best would be to change your page to a dynamic page, and create a
    database with which you could update your values the easiest.

    Does your serer allow for soem type of server side scripting language, like
    PHP or ASP?

    If yes, it would be very simple to setup your values int he top of the page
    (or retrieve them with a database) and then put the calculations in place.

    (essentially would be

    $a=CONSTANT_VALUE; (or obtained from a database)
    $b=CONSTANT_VALUE;
    $c=$a+$b;

    Then, where you want to put them you just do:

    echo $a;

    echo $b;

    echo $c;

    You could also use Javascript in much the same way, but on a static (ie,
    HTML) page.
