I am right now working on an app, the app is pretty simple and works well but the problem is that

there's a form in the app which the user needs to fill and it will be saved in the system for further use. So right now i use a simple notepad file to do so. but managing it is crap. And don't wanna get deep with database.
So is there any alternative for doing so...

Thanks in advance

Yeah, there are several. Try using Registry, Xml, Serialization...

XML, Registry are other alternatives. Or you could just save the info (if it is for only one user) in the settings of your project.

How about the program settings?
In the Solution Explorer, right-click on the project and click on "Properties"
In properties, navigate to "Settings" and create the settings you want to store.
Then reference these settings by the tag:

Any further questions, just ask.
