    Updating a Text File from HTML

    Hi,

    I am an RPG programmer learning PC based Apps.
    I am trying to create an HTML page that will output data from a text file and then allow update of the text file.

    I have used Data Binding to output the data but this cannot be used for update. What is the simplest way to update the file.

    The file is local. i.e. It resides on the PC along with the HTML.
    I have been looking at RDS but that seems like a lot of extra code just to update a text file!

    The simplest way of saving data, on a local system, is to write the data to a window and save it's contents to disk. example
    At least 98% of internet users' DNA is identical to that of chimpanzees

    Thanks Fang.
    I guess I will have to learn some more and use Visual Basic or CGI or even Access. I would prefer to use HTML just because I can make prettier pages more easily, perhaps I will have to bite the bullet and learn RDS!

    Just to fill you in a bit.
    I am downloading a whole bunch of data from an iSeries either as delimited text or as xml onto a tablet PC. The users will then make changes while not connected to a network and then upload the changed data back to the iSeries at the end of the day.
