Default Form data also populates into an Excel Sheet

A job or two ago there was a programmer who added a hidden field that when the form was submitted the info was sent along it's normal path but it also populated into an Excel spread sheet in the server. It was a nice fail safe if something else in the system broke.

I could really use something like this now - any ideas how to do this?

there is also http://phpexcel.codeplex.com/ which does not require excel to be installed on the server.
