Not without some server-side processing, no.

Look into database applications for the Windows Mobile Platform.  We've had great success with HanDBase in the past:

Why not use a regularly hosted website but designed for handhelds? This way you can use php and perhaps have the resulting file emailed to you or stored on the server for download? The only thing the handheld would require is a browser and email app.
