Coding For Multiple Product Updates

I'm starting to think WebMerge will not do what I bought it for ... all I want to do is merge my cleaned, field-labeled Linkshare-originated .txt file from Excel into my existing 50 file website -- goal: to update selected product information that is already on my website.
I have 3-across tables with up to 5-6 rows per .htm file. On each file only about 25% of the products are represented on the data feed. The rest I will need to update manually.
The source file is all formatted and ready to merge. My problem is in adding the tags.
1) Can I merge the source file against my entire website? Or, do I have to set this up file-by-file with each .htm file being an index page with multiple product entries?
2) When coding on the individual .htm file, I assume that I just add the record code for the particular item on my existing .htm file in the position where I want the information to appear. For example:
<a href="[WM-Field: producturl]">
<IMG src="[WM-Field: productimageurl]" width="95" height="161" alt="[WM-Field: productname]" border="2"></a><br>
<font face="Verdana" size="2"><a href="[WM-Field: producturl]">
to Size 3X</b></a></font>
I assume I have to have the sku tag in order to specify what record's information goes in what position; but, I don't want the actual sku to show.
Is there a special code to use to use for the sku to call out a specific record?
I've read all the tutorials and documentation but I can't figure out how to use WebMerge to work as an updater for my existing website. Can someone point me in the right direction for answers?

WebMerge generates static web pages by working its way through the feed record by record. We provide a free demo with all features enabled so folks can try it out to see how well it'll meet their specific needs.
WebMerge can produce two types of pages:
Index pages contain info from any number of records, with options provided for determining when a new page is started.
Detail pages contain info from a single record.
There is not currently a way to tell WebMerge to work only with a specific record, but it generates pages so quickly that even if it runs through the whole lot it should only take between a few seconds and maybe up to a few minutes, depending on the number of records.Richard Gaskin
