    Question. On the files with ".RAR", what does that mean? Also, how to connect the e - Reader on the VBA?

    RAR is a compressed file, like a ZIP, however usually with better compression. You can extract the files with WinRAR.

    Does WinRAR costs to extract files?

    No its free for 30 days, even after that it works perfectly fine and just nags you to buy it.

    Yeah, I try to do things more legitimately and legal as possible. Once the 30 days trial ends, do I uninstall it?

    It's perfectly legal to use a 30 day trial, after that its up to you. You can buy WinRAR or uninstall it.

    7zip should also extract RAR files.
