data from form to .csv file to webpage help req.

P: n/a
HI,
I have set up a page with a form which appends data to a .csv file on my asp
server, this is to enable a limited number of users to add news threads to
this file, which contains the data in the following format
(date,headline,article);
"181003","news title","news article"
"171003","older news title","news article"
The form adds the data in reverse chronological order with newest at the top
of the list.
Now I wish to be able to write the contents of the csv file to a table cell,
formatted the same as the rest of the page (if I use the include tag I get
unformatted text and all the speach marks and no paragraph tag in between
items).
I am new to javascript and asp, although I do have a basic understanding of
how they work.
Could someone kindly explain the best way to achieve this, I'm not looking
for someone to do my hard work for me nessacerely, if it isn't possible to
show me the coding needed, just an explanation will help greatly.
Many thanks in advance

Can you not store it in a database? That would be my preferred option.

Someone else will have to help if not.......
