Unfortunately you can't save data back into a standalone, but there are a
number of other options available:

1) Store your data in a stack that is opened/referenced from the standalone.
Although the standalone itself can't be modified, the stack on disk can.

2) Store your data in a text file that you read and write to.

3) Store your data in a database (like mySQL, Access, etc.) and use Rev's
database features to read and write to the database.

If you need more help, let us know,
