I do not know a lot about html but have taught myself enough to create a
simple web page which contains a Form and several  (different) Inputs. My
question is about what to do with the variables that are defined by the
choices the user selects?
My Problem specifically is this:
    I do NOT want to run this html document on a server! I only want it to
run locally on my own machine. Is there a way to use the variables without
passing to a CGI program?
I can post the code here if it helps, but put simply I want to open a number
of excel spreadsheets based on users preferences and if possible activate a
number of vba macros within these spreadsheets. Is this possible or am I
barking (up the wrong tree)?
Any Help would be gratefully received, even if its to tell me its not
possible, as I have spent many hours trawling html tutorials but to no

you cannot 'do' anything with HTML.  What you need to search for is "client

Thanks for the advice, now you've pointed me in the right direction I can
see what I'll be doing for the next two weeks. There is lots more to this
than first meets the eye.
Just when I think I'm getting an idea of what I'm doing I get knocked back
down again and realise I don't really know anything at all. Not to worry, if
I don't persevere I'll never get there.
