I know that I can use the this.ExportAsText() method in Acrobat to export form data to a text file. But is there any way to APPEND to an existing text, csv, or Excel file?

When I use this method in my button, it overwrites the existing file.

What I am trying to do is: I have a series of hard copy surveys. I would like to be able to use a pdf form version of the form to enter the information and save the information to a text file for later importing to Excel.
