Tabular Data Control


Tabular Data Control is a Microsoft ActiveX control that will sort through a data file, extrapolate the necessary information, and produce that information in specified areas on the web page. This will create output either all at once, in tabular form, or according to user-defined settings (through a scripting language). As a web production tool, the tabular data control can minimize production by allowing a page to be built once and then pouring subsequent information into it as desired. Once the web page is built using the tabular data control, you only have to worry about putting the information in a format the control can easily read.
