Converting a formula to a static entry

Hello, any advise on how to structure the script on this?

Working in formsite.com. Using Custom Script options.

 

I pipe in data from other areas of the form with a 'formula' of sorts (sorry my only real experience is excel, and I don't know this lingo). Once that information is sent over, I want it to stay that information, not change as the formula does.

 

Example:
I have one field that tells me the time/date of NOW. Once that is filled in, I want the time to send to another field and stay put. I can 'pipe' it in, but if the form is accessed again, that time then changes to the current NOW...instead of the old now.

That's how Javascript works, it only executes in the browser. If you want to save information on a server then you need to use something like a database and a server-side language like PHP to save and load the data in the database.
