So is there a way that I can use an html page as a database? My end goal is to put everything into an excel sheet that the people I am making the application for want. I need to upload data from the application to a webpage somehow(or a database of somekind) that, in the end, be formatted to a .csv file

    \$\begingroup\$ With what are you having an issue? Loading a file from the net? Parsing the CSV? Converting an Excel or CSV into HTML? \$\endgroup\$ – Vaillancourt Feb 20 '19 at 20:22
  • \$\begingroup\$ @AlexandreVaillancourt I have never done anything with databases, I have only been familiar with local files. So I do not understand how to go about doing this but I am interested in learning \$\endgroup\$ – user8980526 Feb 21 '19 at 16:44
  • \$\begingroup\$ @AlexandreVaillancourt I have been reading and I have been swayed to use HTML tables to then convert those tables to a CSV file but my initial thing is: How to I format the data I have from the application to be made into a table format that the html document will read and update? \$\endgroup\$ – user8980526 Feb 21 '19 at 18:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ Why do you need an HTML table in the first place? You need your users to update an Excel sheet, then "click a button" on their end that will convert the Excel format into something you can use and upload it on the internet so that your Unity app will consume? \$\endgroup\$ – Vaillancourt Feb 21 '19 at 18:44
  • \$\begingroup\$ @AlexandreVaillancourt This application is for First Robotics Competition(FRC). I am creating some scouting software and the strategy leader wants multiple computers to be able to update a file that has all of the data they collect(All parameters are the same) and anyone to be able to get the data from the database(or something that has the data networkly) and see it as an excel sheet \$\endgroup\$ – user8980526 Feb 21 '19 at 20:40
