    Saving Form Data to file on Network PC

    Hi,

    Not sure if this is possible... i'd like to make an HTML form that will be located on a drive on the company network. People accessing the html file will be doing so by browsing to the actual file and opening it, so it wont be served over a web server or intranet.

    What we need is to be able to save the data from the form to a text file on the network drive. Is this possible? We've tried using document.write but that doesnt write anything...

    any suggestions? is this possible with just Javascript, or do we need to use a server side script?

    cheers

    Hello,

    As far as I know, this is not possible with JavaScript. JavaScript is solely for client-side interactions, which effectively limits the objects it can access to those that are in memory. To save text on a drive, you'll need a server-side app, in a language like PHP or Microsoft ASP.Net C#.
