Not sure why you are going about this the hard way.
Visual Basic.NET has a save and load of variable built in.

At design-time you define your variables to save in the project properties under the settings tab. See attached pic.

At run time your code can access each variable by name.

Public Class Form1 Public TreeCount As Long Public ElfCount As Long Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load TreeCount = My.Settings.TreeCount ElfCount = My.Settings.ElfCount '... End Sub Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosingEventArgs) Handles Button1.Click My.Settings.TreeCount = TreeCount My.Settings.ElfCount = ElfCount '... My.Settings.Save() End Sub End Class

BTW The Form_Closing Event has issues of closing before your code completes. Use some other event(s) to save your settings.
