Save text from an HTML form to a txt file that is read only

I have searched online all day and without success. The company I work for wants to have a form load when anyone signs into a server. I have created a batch file that will run at startup and then open a browser which will pop up the form. However I cannot seem to find a way to get the form data to save to a file. Each time a user signs in this form either has to create a unique file, or add to an existing one. Once that is taken care of how do I get the file that was created by the form to read only so that no one can modify it?

I know a little about HTML and nothing about any other programming language. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

HTML forms must be sent to a page that is written in a server programming language like ASP or PHP.  javascript is not allowed to write directly to files either.  You need to find someone who does know about programming.

If you build a simple ASP page that receives form's POST you can then write those data into a file using builtin FileSystemObject.

HTML is a notation language unable to do any type of file operation.

So if you can't do it in HTML, or Javascript, then what programming language would you prefer?

Or would a program such as Access be better for this, or is there maybe another program that is out there that would do what we want?

Thanks,

Phil

We are looking at another solution for this project. I am working within Excel and UserForms to see if I can't get this to work. Thank you all for you input.
