Save and Retrieve Datasheet Layout with the Windows Registry

The Problem

It was back in December of 2003 when I published my code for   deploying a new client  file automatically. Since then, I have used that code everywhere and I recently ran into a problem.

Some users like to rearrange the columns of datasheets to meet their personal needs, and then when the new file is pushed down, their changes are lost. Needless to say, they didn’t like that very much and as the developer, I started to hear about it. This article is the fruits of my solution to this problem.
