hi,

So heres the deal i am still learning VB (bet you guessed that), now what i am tryiing to do is create a form with a number of text boxes (say 25) where a user can enter their own data. Which they can then save as a file and reload. Now when they reload the file the data needs to be put back in the text boxes where it originated

Which would be the most efficient way to write this?, would i write it ti a csv file or a database or text file, as you can tell i'm a little confused on what areas i need to research.

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

thank you
