HI everyone,

I would like to know if its possible to export the data which entered by a user on the HTML form(processed using php) into an excel without installing MySQL.

I do know that its very easy with MySQL, but its just that my webhost doesn't provide MySQL and wants a hundred bucks for installing one. So I would like to avoid that and somehow export the user entered data in the form directly into the excel file. Unfortunately I won't be able to get MySQL atleast for 4-5 months and right now, all information entered in the form comes to me in email.

So can someone tell me if its possible to get the data entered in a form that is processed by PHP into a spreadsheet.

Thanks for the info guru , but to get a license for commercial purposes, it will cost me $1000 and I think MySQL is 100 times cheaper if I could afford MySQL right now.

Let me know if you find anything else, I'm just loosing hope.....
