I am on a cPanel type shared server, they don't have a way of
converting an Excel spreadsheet to xml (to read it into the
database). This is a pity because xls files are smaller for the
purpose of uploading them. Is there anyway to do this otherwise on a
server, perhaps a different flavour of server?.
You could always save the Excel sheet in CSV format, if your server has
phpMyAdmin installed then this should be easy to import into the
database and should be smaller in size than the excel file as well.
If it does not have it installed, you can download it from
http://www.phpmyadmin.net and upload it your own webspace to use it.
