Hi

  Could someone advice me on how I could save settings to the registry.
Right now it saves under HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> VB and VBA Program Settings. But I want it to be under HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Test1 -> Test2.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanx

Private X As Long
Private Sub SaveString(Hkey As Long, strpath As String, strValue As String, strdata As String)
    Dim keyhand As Long
    Dim r As Long
    X = RegCreateKey(Hkey, strpath, keyhand)
    X = RegSetValueEx(keyhand, strValue, 0, REG_SZ, ByVal strdata, Len(strdata))
    X = RegCloseKey(keyhand)
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Call SaveString(HKEY_CURRENT_USER, "Software\Test1", "Test2", "")
End Sub
