    It depends

    It's hard to say what the best solution for your problem is. But you have three possible ways to go about it (at least three that I can think of).

    1.) make the user re-enter the data whenever they return.
    2.) use a cookie to store the form data and populate the fields when the user returns(not recomended).
    3.) Use a database or text file to store the field variables and relate it back to the user with a login or id stored in a cookie.
