    Well I've given up and will explore a solution through a text file - in effect, a .ini file.
    I also use .ini files to exchange data between scripts - VBA, batch files, PS scripts & mixtures.
    - My only VBA example is rather involved [because I wanted to fit into an overall batch & PS scheme that already existed] but if you have any questions I can probably answer them.
    - My only VBA example is: VBA writing to an ini file then running a batch file which runs a PS1 script that writes to a second ini file that the original VBA then reads.

    Best of luck,

    Multi User Access to VB and VBA Program Setting Entries


    Sorry for the disappointment. You have spurred my conscience, so I went back and tried the HKLM\Software\WOW6432Node\ and was successful in creating a key and reading back from a different user account values set in that key. Thanks for your contribution and for your urging me to apply myself. Its just that at 80 yrs of age I was beginning to feel this is all getting be be beyond me.

    Thanks again

    You can't know how pleased that makes me! At a mere 69, I am, of course, full of vigour and raring to go solve the next interesting problem.
