    Question Help Needed! Quick way to create multilple HTML files?

    I have a small dilemma which I need to resolve.

    I manage a data directory with hundreds of individual sub-directories which contain a variety of different MS-Office based documents. I don't have the cash to purchase a fancy relational database system or Electronic Document Management System.

    So here is the challenge...

    I would like to create a series of simple HTML files and use Internet Explorer as a front end to present the files to the end users. The problem I have is that this files are constantly being altered/added/deleted - so I am reluctant to create static web pages which would constantly be out of date.

    I would like a simple application which would scan the main directory and all subsequent sub-directories and create an HTML file using the sub-directory headers as labels and hot links to each individual file based on individual file name. See attachment for structure.


    What would you suggest I use?

    Thanx

    you could do something like that in xml but it would be extremly slow and hard to work.I reccomend mysql it's free and works like a charm all you have to know is english and you pretty much know mysql.
