While the debugger is open I can retrieve the data that I add using this sub but when i re run the debugger then all the data the was entered is gone. Any help would be much appriciated. Thank You.

Well I thought that was the case and maybe it still is ... does anyone know if the bin folder the debugger uses stays as read only because i've set it to be otherwise and it goes back to being read only. Again any help would be much appriciative.

Thank you that seems to have worked didn't know anything about that property. I do appriciate the help.
