I've posted a zipped activ project here:


It demos using a form to get information, and how to write and read a .js file.   It might suit your purposes.

It doesn't use the Activ Read-or-WriteFile functions, as they deal with whole files, and read or write the text in one block, and you have to parse it afterwards.

Activ's functions are good for single, large chunks of information.

best -
