View Full Version : Form data saved and loaded (with date 'stamp')

01-13-2003, 11:45 AM
Is it possible so save form data in a (dummy) file and load it manually?

The saved data must be marked with a date (which the user can write in a form entry). When the user wants to load a complete form (with its data) of a certain date, he just have to select the date from a combobox.

I've made the forms already.
The data will be saved when closing the form and the data will be loaded when opening the form. When a user opens a form, changes the data and saves it again, the data will be written over.

So I just can't figure out how to save different files with form data, so the user can pick a file (date name) which he wants to open.

Can anybody help me? Thanks.

use a shared object - see the tute on this site re this - and maybe save your different form entries into an array. - will work like a cookie, ie not from a different machine that the one the client used last time - if that's a problem use a database.
