My husband needs some help with putting MS Excel charts on a website, so I offered to post his questions here to see if anyone on the SD could help. Here is his problem:
I have some data in Excel that I want to get on a web page. The previous
version of the web page includes a chart and a table of data, both included
in a single GIF image that is added to the page. But when I try to update
the data I run into a few problems:
When I save the data from excel, the chart becomes a gif image, and the
table is turned into an html table. How do I create a GIF that includes
both? (I don’t want to have to re-write the rest of the page if I can avoid
When I attempt to scale the image, either on the web page as part of
the IMG tag, or using a separate tool (I tried MGI Photosuite), the text
resolution looks horrid.
I know it can work, it’s been done before. Unfortunately, there is NO
information on how it was done. The person’s gone; the computers are all
completely different; we’re even running completely different apps (I have
no idea what they had access to previously).
Help ! (and thanks)
