How to Create a Database from Excel - Part 1: Import SpreadsheetNo matter what type of business you are in, chances are that you email Microsoft Excel spreadsheets for one reason or another. Why do so many people send Excel files around, only to create email clutter and versioning chaos for everyone involved?

For many, it boils down to good old fashioned ROI. Perhaps you previously attempted to build a database application and the process was just too complex and time-consuming. Or perhaps you never found a fast-to-deploy tool that can effectively replace the speed and convenience of Excel.

Caspio was specifically designed for business users looking to quickly create a database without having to worry about the technical complexities of coding, security or hosting. It automatically generates a web database for you when each Excel worksheet is imported. From there, you can “point-and-click” to create various application interfaces for users to search, view and edit data based on permissions that you control. You can easily embed the application on any public or internal website so all your users have access to the latest information in real-time.

In this blog series, we will show you how to create a database from your Excel spreadsheets, build an interactive web application, and deploy it online in a matter of minutes.
