In this chapter, you considered the evolution of the Win32 Registry, what it does, how it works, and how it is used, and looked at the tools you can use to examine and modify the Registry.
You explored the Win32 Registry structure and perused the built-in VBA functions you can use to manipulate that portion of the Registry specifically set aside for VBA programmers. Finally, you built your own modest Registry module.
