I know I can insert the contents of an Excel file into a MYSQL Table by using PHPMyAdmin.
However, I want to avoid my client having to access such a powerful area.

What I would like to achieve is a Web Form with a file upload field and php script that put the Excel contents directly into a Table. This form would live in the Password protected Admin area used by the client for the site CMS.

Please keep any suggestions to relatively simple terms so that I can understand.
Thanks in advance.

I just googled "parse excel with php" and found an ibm tutorial on how to do it with the excel file saved as xml, and a google code project that claims to do it for regular excel file. I think if you read the tutorial you would get a grasp of what is involved and perhaps the google code would help as well.

Hope that helps.
