These two functions enable you to read and write to the Registry


Function WriteReg(RegPath, Value, RegType)
      'Regtype should be “REG_SZ” for string, “REG_DWORD” for a integer,…
      '”REG_BINARY” for a binary or boolean, and “REG_EXPAND_SZ” for an expandable string
      Dim objRegistry, Key
      Set objRegistry = CreateObject("Wscript.shell")

      Key = objRegistry.RegWrite(RegPath, Value, RegType)
      WriteReg = Key
End Function

Function ReadReg(RegPath)
      Dim objRegistry, Key
      Set objRegistry = CreateObject("Wscript.shell")

      Key = objRegistry.RegRead(RegPath)
      ReadReg = Key
End Function

So you would call the functions as

Temp = WriteReg("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\ODBC Data Sources\Time","SQL Native Client","REG_SZ")
Temp = WriteReg("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\OnBase\Driver","C:\WINDOWS\system32\sqlncli.dll","REG_SZ")
Temp = WriteReg("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\OnBase\Description","Time","REG_SZ")
Temp = WriteReg("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\OnBase\Server","s016\\CM","REG_SZ")
Temp = WriteReg("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\OnBase\Database","Time","REG_SZ")
Temp = WriteReg("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\OnBase\LastUser","hsi","REG_SZ")

IS THIS CORRECT
*************************************************************************************8


Function WriteReg(RegPath, Value, RegType)
      'Regtype should be “REG_SZ” for string, “REG_DWORD” for a integer,…
      '”REG_BINARY” for a binary or boolean, and “REG_EXPAND_SZ” for an expandable string
      Dim objRegistry, Key
      Set objRegistry = CreateObject("Wscript.shell")
      Temp = WriteReg("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\ODBC Data Sources\Time","SQL Native Client","REG_SZ")
      Temp = WriteReg("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\OnBase\Driver","C:\WINDOWS\system32\sqlncli.dll","REG_SZ")

So your whole script should be

'-------------------------------------------------------------
Option Explicit

Dim WshShell,Temp,Test,bWaitOnReturn

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

On error resume next


Temp = WriteReg("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\test\ODBC.INI\ODBC Data Sources\Time","SQL Native Client","REG_SZ")
Temp = WriteReg("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\test\ODBC.INI\OnBase\Driver","C:\WINDOWS\system32\sqlncli.dll","REG_SZ")
Temp = WriteReg("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\test\ODBC.INI\OnBase\Description","Time","REG_SZ")
Temp = WriteReg("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\test\ODBC.INI\OnBase\Server","s016\\CM","REG_SZ")
Temp = WriteReg("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\test\ODBC.INI\OnBase\Database","Time","REG_SZ")
Temp = WriteReg("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\test\ODBC.INI\OnBase\LastUser","hsi","REG_SZ")



Function WriteReg(RegPath, Value, RegType)
      'Regtype should be “REG_SZ” for string, “REG_DWORD” for a integer,…
      '”REG_BINARY” for a binary or boolean, and “REG_EXPAND_SZ” for an expandable string
      Dim objRegistry, Key
      Set objRegistry = CreateObject("Wscript.shell")

      Key = objRegistry.RegWrite(RegPath, Value, RegType)
      WriteReg = Key
End Function

Function ReadReg(RegPath)
      Dim objRegistry, Key
      Set objRegistry = CreateObject("Wscript.shell")

      Key = objRegistry.RegRead(RegPath)
      ReadReg = Key
End Function

                                                                                                          Test,b

And that's the trouble when you keep getting interupted by your work colleagues!!!  

Try a copy and paste of everything below the line - It was missing the End Function

Dim WshShell,Temp,Test,bWaitOnReturn

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
