    i need to create a simple, searchable business directory for a non-profit downtown association. i have a set up a page with all 750 businesses but i can't figure out how to make it searchable by business name or business category. the database contains these fields:

    business name (with a hyperlink to the website for each business)
    street address
    phone number
    category (type of business)

    is there a plug-in i could use to import this database (spreadsheet) and display it as a directory that is searchable? no membership or login required to access this website.

    thank you in advance for any suggestions.

    Most spreadsheet apps contain an HTML export function.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I was able to import the content from Excel but I was trying to find the right plugin for the business directory search function.

    You can create a Search Page with these instructions, I am not using any Search Plugins so I won't recommend one.
