    Hello, I am trying to create a fantasy golf page on my website and would like to display dynamic data in the form of a spreadsheet on the site. Currently, I am using the Contact Form 7 plugin to receive each player’s picks via email. The information is parsed from the email into an Excel spreadsheet. The Excel spreadsheet has formulas that reference a different Excel file which pulls PGA tournament results from the web. I have used this process in the past, to display registrations for a golf tournament we have each year, using wpDataTables Lite. While not ideal, because I have to manually upload the spreadsheet every time there is a new registration, it has performed sufficiently for displaying the registrants. When trying to use this process to upload my fantasy golf results spreadsheet, I get a formula error, which prevents me from adding the spreadsheet to the site. While I could contact wpDataTables to get support on this issue, I don’t feel like this process is the most efficient way to get the information to display on my site. My question is, does anyone have a better way of doing this?

    Hi there!

    I don’t see any sites under your account so I think that your site is not hosted with WordPress.com. It is a site using the open-source WordPress software (from WordPress.org) but hosted elsewhere.

    Because WordPress.com and WordPress.org are two entirely separate entities, we cannot access files or data for sites that are hosted elsewhere, so WordPress.com staff can only assist with sites that are hosted on our servers. You can read more about the differences between WordPress.org software and WordPress.com here:

    You can look for help at the community forums here: https://wordpress.org/support/forums/

    http://wordpress.org/support/ is also a great resource for sites using the open-source WordPress.org software.
