Is here something wrong:

Do While Data1.Recordset.EOF <> True
  If Data1.Recordset(1).Value = Null Then
    List1.AddItem Data1.Recordset(0)
  Else
    List1.AddItem Data1.Recordset(1)
  End If
   
  Data1.Recordset.MoveNext
Loop

Even if there is NULL in Data1.Recordset(1).Value, List1.AddItem Data1.Recordset(0) never happen?

Use

If IsNull(Data1.Recordset(1).Value) then

instead of Data1.Recordset(1).Value = Null

damienm is correct.  You can't test for null with "= Null" because the right side of the equation will ALWAYS evaluate to False.

Assuming Data1.Recordset(1).Value is a String.. A better way to do this test (and more efficient) is to just test the length of it.. <smile>

If Len(Data1.Recordset(1).Value) > 0 _
Then
  List1.AddItem Data1.Recordset(1)
Else
  List1.AddItem Data1.Recordset(0)
End If
