Hi leachim, Use

1. Working Directly with Objects

Dim Doc as Word.Document
set Doc = CreateObject("Word.Document")
...do the loop...
Doc.PrintOut
Doc.SaveAs filename
Set Doc = Nothing

OR

2. Working Through the Application
Dim WordApp as Word.Application
Dim Doc as Word.Document
Set WordApp = new Word.Application
Set Doc = WordApp.Documents.Add
...do the loop...
Set Doc = Nothing
Set WordApp = Nothing

No problem, I didn't have time to get back to you as I'm at work.

You could also use a ListView control.

The WINAPI Looks ok to me, you just have to output the listbox entries line by line into a file, and I'm sure you know how to do that. If you're satisfied now, you should delete this question.

Bye

Presonally, I'd dump it out as a tab-delimited file and load in as needed.

Ohhhh.  I guess that was a really bad answer if it only got a C-grade (:@)

Did you want a procedure to do that?
