color values cmyk to 256

I have a file from a client that has a table with the color values recorded as CMYK. (eg.  50, 0, 10, 0)

I'd like to display the colors but I can only figure out how to do it if it's in the 256 color format.  Is there a way for me to convert CMYK color values to a 256 color value.  I realize the hues/colors won't be perfect, and I'll be happy with colors close to what the original data was using.  Maybe there's a way to go from CMYK to RGB, and then to 246? 

 

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?   I'm at a loss!

I would like to clarify since I don't even understand what I originally posted. 

I have a file from a client that has a table with the color values recorded as CMYK. (eg.  50, 0, 10, 0)

I'd like to display the colors but I can only figure out how to do it if it's in the 256 color format (eg 130).  Is there a way for me to convert CMYK color values to this single number 256 color value that MAP uses in the table value.  I realize the hues/colors won't be perfect, and I'll be happy with colors close to what the original data was using.  Maybe there's a way to go from CMYK (eg.  50, 0, 10, 0) to RGB (100, 20, 35), and then to single 256 value  (eg 130)?   I'm looking for something more like a batch process since there's a few hundred colors here I'd need to convert.
