Default Save User Data

Right now I am making a simple program that needs to save user data between sessions. I just started reading Beginning VB 2005 and up to chapter 8 the only way I can save data from what I have learned is to save strings to a text document, and then load from this document when the program resumes. This particular application needs to save so much data that using this method is not efficient or practical.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what topic I should be studying to answer this or any websites that can help? Thanks!

Here is a link to MSDN on the "My.Settings" object. This is one method that will work for you.
