with a file that looked like this i wrote this up

File ->  
string1 string2 string3 string4

Code ->
1) Add a label to the form and make its index property 0, then paste this code:


Option Explicit

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Const ForReading = 1
    Dim filesys, txtStream As Object
    Dim fileStr As String
    Dim arr As Variant
    Dim i As Integer
    For i = 1 To 3
        Load Label1(i)
        Label1(i).Left = Label1(i - 1).Left
        Label1(i).Top = Label1(i - 1).Top + Label1(i).Height
        Label1(i).Visible = True
    Next
    Set filesys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set txtStream = filesys.OpenTextFile("C:\mypath\myfile.txt", _
        ForReading)
    fileStr = txtStream.ReadAll
    arr = Split(fileStr)
    For i = 0 To Label1.ubound
        Label1(i).Caption = arr(i)
    Next
End Sub

Open "Z:\read.txt" For Input As #1
Dim line(5)
For x = 1 To 5
 Line Input #1, line(x)
 Next
Label1.Caption = line(1)
Label2.Caption = line(2)
Label3.Caption = line(3)
Label4.Caption = line(4)

Here hope this might help you out I used an Array of Five Labels

Dim FileNum As Integer
Dim Counter As Integer
Dim StrBuffer As String
On Error Resume Next
FileNum = FreeFile
 Counter = 0
Open "C:\test.txt" For Input As FileNum
 Do While Not EOF(FileNum)
 Input #FileNum, StrBuffer
 Counter = Counter + 1
 Label1(Counter).Caption = StrBuffer
  Loop
  Close #FileNum

Its part of a quiz game,
containing 4 questions
The file would look like this:
Q#3,Text1,Text2,Text3,Text4
or something similar..

Where number 3 is the right question
in the row

Still figuring out a way how
to give the questions a number
so i can use 1 textfile
and doing a random choice
of all the question's in the file

sorry for any spelling mistakes (if any)
i'm dutch..

Thanks for your comments..

use the exact same code i posted above except change these lines:


arr = Split(fileStr, ",")
For i = 0 To Label1.ubound
    Label1(i).Caption = arr(i + 1)
Next
