Storing results of a form - anyhow

Hello once again!

What kind of possibilities may I use to store information out of a form?

I'm working on a survey for our company.
Therefor I created a html-document with a form in it.
Till now I used the action "mailto:" to return the rsults of that form.
But I think there must be better ways.

I could save the survey-html-file on one of our fileservers, so that
everyone can access the file.
It would be good to let the system create a result-file for every user.
One big file or even one file per user.

The problem is that I can't be sure what kind of browsers are used by our
users.
And some users don't have an email-account, so that I can't return the
results per "mailto"-action.

What do I have to do?
Can this be done on a simple win2000-fileserver?
Or do I have to install a webserver?

BTW, this survey has to be opened in our LAN only. There will be no real
www-access!

Thanks for all your help and please excuse my bad english...

Axel

Database
Flat files
.... not much other choice.

Which often doesn't work: http://www.isolani.co.uk/newbie/mailto.html

Server side processes.

Try a webserver instead. http://httpd.apache.org/

Browser choice is irrelevent, http is a standard.
And some users don't have an email-account, so that I can't return the
results per "mailto"-action.
Which is why you shouldn't violate the HTML specification by using the
mailto action.
Can this be done on a simple win2000-fileserver?
No.
Or do I have to install a webserver?


Yes.
