Good day to all,
I am trying to add a search on my website, the problem is that the files that i have to search in are mostly excell sheets.the sheets include two columns basicly , ie arabic terms along with their equivalent english translation. can someone tell me what is the easiest way to do this. i studied perl but havent used it in a while..

The easiest or the best or a compromise?

The easiest: open the files one at a time and use whatever method works for finding what ever it is you are searching for.

The best: store the data in a database.

A compromise: index the site and search only the index file that would point to the documents where the content can be found.
