"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

First, make sure you check with their Broker/Dealers Compliance Officer first before you start something that can't get approved later.   They will probably want some details and sample coding and sample screens.

Otherwise, you can use a serverside scripting like php, asp and a handful of other serverside languages.   As long as the page has some type of password associated with it you should be good.  

Of course, this is more complex then simple once you get into it.   You will also want to make sure balances are created dynamically and not a file to download.

EE's Ray_Paseur has a nice article on this
