Hi,

I need to create a simple form with 2 buttons; After filling out the form, clicking the first button would save his/her field entries into a plain text file and place in a specifed network folder. The second button would simply submit the form in the typical manner ifor regular processing (javamail, etc) and not create the file. I know how to create a basic form, but saving the field entries to a file is where I am unsure what to do. Can someone help?  Regards.

<!-- My Simple Form -->
<form action="processform.jsp" method="get">

Your Name <input type="text" name="user">
Your Address <input type="text" name="location">

<input type="button" value="Save entries as a text file" onclick="do something here?...">
<input type="submit" value="SUBMIT FORM">
</form>
...
==============================================
...
<%
// processform.jsp
String NAME = request.getParameter("user");
String ADDRESS = request.getParameter("location");
%>
//printout fields
<%=NAME%>
<br>
<%=ADDRESS%>
...
=================================================
