Apps that transform csv into catalog-style database-driven sortable lists

Sites such as download.com, dealtime.com, shopping.com, and tucows.com,
feature impressive sortable lists of products.

What software that imports CSV can be used to generate database-driven
sortable product listings such as shown on such sites?

I am already able to get CSV into sortable (by javascript) HTML tables
that do not use databases, but there are problems with this such as the
slow sort time when there are many items, the inability to break the
lists produced into several linked pages, the general clumsiness and
lack of capabilities in the make-shift methods I use to do this, the
integration of search functions that work with the lists.

I have been having a hard time finding software that is worth the
price, that can transform CSV output into the download.com etc type
sortable lists.

I have found some "shopping cart" softwares, but many of these
softwares feature inadequate demos, or unreasonable prices given the
capability of the software (ie, it costs $300 but judging from the
demos the lists it produces are not sortable, and it cannot import CSV).

Access and MSSQL read CSV files.
