Hello! I need a little help, I'm probally missing something simple here. But I have made a program and its doing everything I want. Expect Saving. Here is a Screenshot of it

I want the Save... Button to save the current Data into a File and then make a Drop down at the top, To Reopen that file, which would fill the Input boxes with the data...

Hope that makes sence.. Please just point me in the right Direction >_<

Look at the IniWrite functions in the Help file - they will help you to write a file containing the current values in the inputs.

The IniRead functions will help you get the data back - including filling the combo at the top so you can choose which set of data to load.
