    I want to provide a "Save" button on a web page which will allow the user to save the selected options under a specific name. The user can then use this name to bring up the pre-selected options. Instead of re- selecting the same options again.

    Can any one provide some help. This is really important. Does not need to be done in JavaScript.

    Thanks again

    Do you mean the surfer to reuse the info during that visit ? or at later visits.

    If you want to store the info for subsequent visits you will need to use cookies in javascript. But a db would be better.

    What languages do you have available? cookies are much easier in PHP or ASP than javascript.

    If you just want to hold the data during the surfers visit there are other ways to go about it, please elaborate.

    Ok
    Here's exactly what's going on. I have a report selection page for a database on the web. A user will select certain options and process the report based on the criteria he/she selected. What I want to do is allow the user to be able to save his/her selected options (report parameters) such that on a next time to produce a report they don't have to redo their parameters. But instead could have a list of reports that were already created.

    I have tried the concept of cookies. However cookies are only stored on the hard-drive of a local computer. I want to be able to store them on a desginated server.

    Thanks again for your assistance.

    OK - what languages do you have available? ASP PHP PERL? , javascript can not read/write from a file, so you need to use one of the above, let us know
