Well, I'm an ASP dude, but I'm sure Cold Fusion must have a similar
means of doing this.. still, I'll not to be language-specific.

First, access your file system object and call its CreateFile method
(Make sure you've set write-permissions for the folder you'll be writing
the file to).  Then use the write or writeln method to pass the
user-input to it.  You already know the name and path of the file you
created, so then store that in a database entry along with the other

That's it.. it's pretty simple once you know how.  But then, isn't

such a
so that I can set the output to a text file for later retrieval.
