The simplest method of this is to add one of each control to your form, set the index property to 0, (zero, not blank). You can then load additional elements of the control array using the load statement.

Here is an example:

rstData.MoveFirst
For intCount = 1 To rstData.RecordCount - 1
  Load txtText(intCount)
  txtText(intCount).Left = 100
  txtText(intCount).Top = 100 + 200 * intCount
  txtText(intCount).Text = rstData!TextField
  txtText(intCount).Visible = True
  Load lblLabel(intCount)
  lblLabel(intCount).Left = 2500
  lblLabel(intCount).Top = 100 + 200 * intCount
  lblLabel(intCount).Caption = rstData!LabelField
  lblLabel(intCount).Visible = True
  rstData.MoveNext
Next

To Clear Down:

rstData.MoveFirst
For intCount = 1 To rstData.RecordCount - 1
  Unload txtText(intCount)
  Unload lblLabel(intCount)
  rstData.MoveNext
Next

Surely you can.
Using controlArray.

After you open your recordset (say you call it MyRS), check how many record you have. Then use Load to add more picturebox, label and buttons.
At design time, you put one of each in your form. say you call it MyPic, MyBut, and MyLab. set the Index property to 0.

add the code to create the array
With MyRS
If .EOF = False then
     .MoveLast
     .MoveFirst
     MyLab(0).Caption = !somefieldName
     MyBut(0).caption = !SomeFieldName
     MyPic(0).Picture = Whatever
     If .RecordCount > 1 then
             For i   = 1 to .RecordCount -1
                   .MoveNext
                   Load MyLab(i)
                   Load MyBut(i)
                   Load MyPic(i)
                    MyLab(i).Caption = !somefieldName
                     MyBut(i).caption = !SomeFieldName
                    MyPic(i).Picture = Whatever
                  'set the position in the form
                   MyLab(i).Left = whatever
                   MyLab(i).Top = whatever
                  ...
               Next i
         End If
End With

an alternative to creating a control array:

it also allows you to add controls that arent on your form to begin with
