Convert web site form to Fannie Mae 3.2 file

I designed a web site for a mortgage company.  I need to convert data from a web site form into a fannie mae 3.2 file.  My client wants to take information that is submitted on a form from their web site and import it into Calyx Point(popular software in the mortgage industry). Somehow, the data from the form needs to be converted to a fannie mae 3.2 file format.  That is the file format that can import directly to Calyx Point.

It looks like Fannie Mae doesn't publish its file format, so I think you're out of luck in that approach. Fortunately according to: http://www.calyxsoftware.com/solutions/point/features.asp#dataimport Calyx point can import from ASCII formats as well as Fannie Mae. All you need to do is find out how it likes its ASCII data formatted and you should have no difficulty exporting from PHP (in whatever database your data currently resides). The best approach is to either obtain the user documentation for Point, or contact Calyx and ask them how data should be formatted - most data-tool companies are much more co-operative in telling people how to get data into their software than the other direction!

The fannie mae format is a character delimited text file.
So what you would need to do is format the output of the form (or database) to the Fannie mae 3.2 format.

The output file will look something similar to:
EH                                                  
TH T100099-0021        
TPI 1.0001                              
0001  3.20 W
00ANN
01A01                                                                                      

Where the EH, TH, TPI are simply the headers for the data format.
