Hello sir,

I have a bunch of html files and those were created from database contents.

Now i dont have that data by which my html files was generated and now i need that original data from html files.

Copy pasting is very time consuming process so Which is the best approach to convert these html files into excel so that i can upload these again in my database.

PLEASE guide me.

Thanks in advance dear.

You can develop simple windows application( May be in C# or where you can use Browser ActiveX component. Using this component you can parse the HTML and then you can manipulate the data.

Sorry ....i forgot to add ....

You can then write the data to CSV format which can be opened in Excel.

Craete an C# application.
Go to View ---> Toolbox

In the toolbox look for WebBrowser control

Drag it to your dialog box ....
Now in your code try to access webbrowser1.Document

here Document is nothing but the object of HtmlDocument.

You can use this object to manipulate the HTML loaded in the WebBrowser component.

(here webbrowser1 is the object of Webbrowser created by the Visual studio after you place the control on the dialog box. Name could be different in your case like webbrowser2, webbrowser3)
