I know very little about PHP and tent to use pre-writen scripts that are free. I have created a csv database and I need to be able to manipulate the data and search on it etc. I have looked through the threads on here and its all beyond me... I could realty do with some help here. Do any of you know where I can get a script to view, edit, search through a csv file?...

Cheers all

You might want to look into importing that CSV into a mysql database. From there you could use phpmyadmin to search through and manipulate your data. I don't know of any software that deals w/ csv on their own, but that's not to say there aren't any.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld Pulling My Hair Out,

as Christopher C mentioned it would probably be best to use a database. You could look around at something like [hotscripts.com...] to see if you can find something to start with. You will still probably end up having to learn some php anyway. In the long run it will be better to learn and be able to do this youreself.

this thread will give you some direction

Thanks for this, I'll see what I can find out. I looked at using SQL but I could'nt find a script to post the data to the database in PHP only Perl and that looks ever more confusing. I am using a basic web form witht he post action to the csv file - seems it was the only way.

If you know of any others it would be appreciated.

I have scrolled through and through Hotscripts as I get a lot from there but it was a dead end....

Do you think I am I looking for to much here?

Cheers for the advice

well, you could check out the PHP Library [webmasterworld.com] and check out some of the threads in there for mysql basics.

The trouble is, at some point, you are going to have to learn a little or get a programmer on contract. It really isn't that bad, it can be picked up in a fairly short time. The biggest problem is using finding a project to cut your teeth on, which you already have.
