    If the server goes down while a user is entering data into a web application the data is probably going to be lost. If you only have 10 fields and the user thinks they need it in an Excel spreadsheet I think you're best option is to have them put in the Excel spreadsheet first, save it locally and then let them key it into the web application. I bet they won't like that idea though.

    A better solution may be to save the data to a database periodically as they enter it. The user will have to come with how often they think this data should be saved or perhaps they can press a button to save it in a draft before committing it in a transaction.
