Giving users the ability to import into tables.

Question

Is it possible to give users a Datapage that they can pick a file and then import into a table?  The situation I have is that I have a basic datapage that will be used to record volunteer hours.  But also we will have some HR managers adding bulk hours to a spreadsheet template that will then be imported into the same table.  I know if I have them drop the file on our internal network, I can build a process to FTP it to Caspio and have a Scheduled Task do the import.  I actually do that for some other processes.  But for this scenario ,  they are wanting to live in one form area where they can do the manual entry or a mass import via a nice interface without have to remember the local file path to drop the spreadsheet into.  I have a datapage that will upload the file to the Caspio Data Stor but then I can't automate anything from there.  Unless I'm missing how to do that.  Any thoughts or idea's are greatly appreciated.  Or maybe someone has come up with a slick way to use the Tools Import feature in a data page.  :)

Can you elaborate on this? Pick a file? From their system? and what do you want the data to look like after submission? Are you only using 1 table? do you have clearer steps of your workflow? It's kinda hard for me to visualize.
