Hi,

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you mean

Copying a line of text from a listbox to an editbox or something
Edit the line
And then return it to its place in the listbox

If you say yes to these three Q's I'll be on it!

Happy new year.

this is perfect for what you're doing!  i wish the points were higher though. :o(

make a listbox (list1), a textbox (text1), and a command button(command1).

then put the following code in:

Private Sub form_load()
  Open "yourfile" For Input As #1
  Do Until EOF(1)
    Input #1, x
    List1.AddItem x
  Loop
  Close
  Command1.Caption = "&Edit"
End Sub

Private Sub command1_click()          'edit button
  If Command1.Caption = "&Edit" Then
    Command1.Caption = "&Done"
    Text1.Enabled = True
    Text1.BackColor = &HFFFFFF
    Static n As Integer
    n = List1.ListIndex
    Text1.Text = List1.List(List1.ListIndex)
    Text1.SetFocus
    Text1.SelStart = 0
    Text1.SelLength = Len(Text1.Text)
  Else
    Command1.Caption = "&Edit"
    Text1.BackColor = &HC0C0C0
    Text1.Enabled = False
    List1.List(n) = Text1.Text
    Text1.Text = ""
    Open "yourfile" For Output As #1
    For i = 1 To List1.ListCount
      Print #1, List1.List(i)
    Next i
    Close
  End If
End Sub
