Try this:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim i As Integer, totnum As Integer
For i = o To List1.ListCount - 1
    List1.ListIndex = i
    totnum = totnum + List1.Text
Next i
MsgBox totnum
End Sub

I think I was submitting my answer while you were editing the question.  So here is the revised answer.  

Dim i As Integer, totnum As Integer
For i = o To List1.ListCount - 1
    List1.ListIndex = i
    List2.AddItem List1.Text         'This will add the selected item in List1 to List2
    If IsNumeric(List1.Text) = True Then   'This checks to be sure   it is numeric before adding to the total
        totnum = totnum + List1.Text
    End If
Next i
Label1.Caption = totnum     'This displays the total in Label1

Sorry, that should be:
For i = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1

Zero, not o
