    Sigh... no...

    It's just that from the question you ask it's obvious that it would take a lot of work to explain all the basics to you. If you just want an "easy" solution to what you propose, you will be disappointed. ("No servers involved...") Why not just use Microsoft Access and forget about HTML-style forms?

    Otherwise, you are going to have to spend some time reading about web application scripting, such as PHP, ASP, and how to build a database-backed website, etc... etc... You will have to do your homework just like the rest of us.

    FreeBSD -> PostgreSQL -> [any_language] -> Apache -> Mozilla/XUL

    As a computer illiterate, take a first lesson, read this:
    New users - HOW TO POST A QUESTION - READ THIS FIRST
    expecially:
    Don't use stupid topic names
    Post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT. Don't use attention getting subjects. They don't get attention. They repel attention and annoy people.
    and
    Remember when people help you, they are doing YOU a favor
