    javascript:function

    Hello,

    I'm new with javascript and would like to know if "javascript:function
    could somewhat query a specific column name and records in a *.csv file (or) excel.xls file format.

    I'm presently researching VRML modeling, I'm trying to integrate javascript so an Ascii file or Excel database so I could identify 3d ojects using existing "Anchor" node, (i.e. Anchor { url "javascript:function ????" description "My Model"

    By "clicking" on the object the script would return an output value to
    a frame or window.

    My sample database would be:

    description find_no remarks location
    my stuff 1 testing south end
    stove 2 too hot north end


    example output to a frame or window when you click the object

    -----------------------------------------------------
    description| find_no |remarks| location |
    ------------------------------------------------------
    stove 2 Too hot North end|


    If know of anyone, I would appreciate an example.

    Thank You.

    Javascript runs on the client, thus it can't access the server and the database. So you need a server-side language to do it.
