Elevate your website's data presentation with our Excel to HTML table converter — no coding skills necessary. This tool is particularly for those who already have data stored in an Excel spreadsheet or a file in CSV format who are now looking to convert that data into an HTML table to use on a website. Whether you're using a popular website builder like Webflow, Squarespace, Wix, or WordPress, our converter ensures your tables are responsive and accessible.

Whether you're looking to represent a list or products or showcase lab results from a scientific study, you'll be able to convert your Excel spreadsheet to a table using our free online tool.

Step-by-Step Tutorial

Converting an Excel spreadsheet to an HTML table has never been easier. Follow these 4 simple steps to make the processes seamless and efficient. Let's get started!

Step 1: Convert Your Excel Spreadsheet Into a CSV File

Due to the nature of Excel spreadsheets (and others like it, such as Google Sheets), we first recommend saving your spreadsheet as a CSV file. This will save all of the raw data in your spreadsheet without any text markup applied, such as bold, italic, links, etc.

Don't worry, once your converted Excel spreadsheet is uploaded, you'll be able to add any additional text markup you'd like!

Step 2. Import Your CSV File

Begin by uploading your CSV file. You can do this by clicking on the "Upload CSV" button found in the Actions toolbar.

From here, you will be prompted to either drag and drop your CSV file or browse your computer for the CSV file you want to upload.

Step 3: Style Your Table

This is the fun part! Using our style panel, you can choose from a number of different CSS properties. Similarly, you can also select the text within your table and apply different markup, such as bold, italic, links, etc. This is a powerful way to take your CSV data to the next level visually.

Step 4. Copy the Code & Paste Into Your Project

Once you're happy with how your table looks, you can copy the code by clicking on the "Copy" button found above the code output.

Common Questions

What is an Excel spreadsheet?

An Excel spreadsheet is a file created using Microsoft Excel, a popular spreadsheet software application (which you've likely used before). It consists of a grid of cells arranged in rows and columns. Each cell can contain text, numbers, formulas, or functions. Excel spreadsheets are widely used for various purposes, including financial analysis, data management, budgeting, planning, and more.

Excel spreadsheets are often recognized for their older file format (.xls) which was the default file format from Excel 97 through Excel 2003. Similarly, their new file format (.xlsx) has been the default from Excel 2007 through the present.

Similar to CSV files and Google Sheets, Excel Spreadsheets are a great choice when it comes to converting data to HTML tables due to their tabular nature.

How is an Excel spreadsheet converted into an HTML table?

Converting an Excel spreadsheet into an HTML table typically involves reading the data from the spreadsheet, saving it as a CSV file, formatting it as HTML, and then rendering it as a table in an HTML document.

Due to the way Excel handles formatted markup such as bold, italic and links, we recommend first saving your Excel spreadsheet as a CSV file. This way, you'll be left with the raw, unformatted data that can then be imported using our app. Once the spreadsheet is uploaded, you'll have the ability to add any additional text markup you'd like as well as style the table to your desired look and feel.

Once the rows and columns in the spreadsheet are parsed and understood, we're able to map each piece of data to a cell within your table (either a <th> if it's in the first row or a <td> if it's in any row thereafter).

For the sake of convenience, we'll also use the name of the saved file as the <caption> for the table, which can easily be changed once the converted Excel spreadsheet is uploaded.
