We have an old Cisco call manager at our office and the call manager generates a call history report in .csv files everyday. We need to make the call log history report available for managers on web based system.

What tool will help to automatically generate web pages for the .csv files when the call manager creates the .csv file?

  • I'm not sure what you mean by generating the .csv files, do you mean generate web pages? – paulmorriss Aug 12 '11 at 13:20

  • I've changed the question to hopefully make that clear. – paulmorriss Aug 12 '11 at 14:39

A basic PERL, PHP, or Python script would be needed to parse it and display the results for you. If you can't find an existing script for parsing those log files then you would need to write one yourself. Fortunately working with CSV files is easy. If you choose to use PHP they have a lot of built in functions for parsing CSV files.


You could open the csv file in Excel and save as .html. If you want it done automatically you can do this with VBA:

Workbooks.Open ("export.csv")
Workbooks("export.csv").SaveAs "export.html", xlHtml
