Thanks for your replies,

A database engine is not what I need because I don't know how to do it. I
will stick with TXT files.
If I follow Henks suggestion I will export every users choice as a seperate
But how do I collect these?
I know how to import just one textfile but how do I import more than one
They will look like this: date_name.TXT
