The data can be saved either in a database, flat file or binary file
Are you looking for a simple file solution?

If you need a log file try this:
sub WriteLog(LFile as String,LogTitle as String, LogText as String)
     Open LFile For Append As #1
     print #1, LogTitle & ": " & LogText
     close #1
end sub

example:
WriteLog "C:\MyFile.txt","Start UP","The Aplication Start"
This program will append to the Lfile...
