if you download the module here:

You can add it to your project and then use something like this to save and retrieve settings:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
' store text from Text1 and Text2
SaveStringSetting "MyAppName", "Settings", "MyText1", Text1.Text
SaveStringSetting "MyAppName", "Settings", "MyText2", Text2.Text
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
' retrieve text from Text1 and Text2
Text1.Text = GetStringSetting("MyAppName", "Settings", "MyText1")
Text2.Text = GetStringSetting("MyAppName", "Settings", "MyText2")
End Sub

If you want a simpler solution you could just use VB's SaveSetting and GetSetting

Private Sub Command1_Click()
' store text from Text1 and Text2
SaveSetting "MyAppName", "Settings", "MyText1", Text1.Text
SaveSetting "MyAppName", "Settings", "MyText2", Text2.Text
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
' retrieve text from Text1 and Text2
Text1.Text = GetSetting("MyAppName", "Settings", "MyText1")
Text2.Text = GetSetting("MyAppName", "Settings", "MyText2")
End Sub
