Im not sure if this is what you want ...

Open yourFile For Output As #1

   then loop through listbox
      Print #1, listboxvalue
   end loop

Close #1

Dim strLine As String
Dim intItem As Integer
Dim intItem1 As Integer
Dim intColumns As Integer
intColumns = 5 ' Number of columns across
Open "MyFile.txt" For Output As #1
For intItem = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
  strLine = ""
  For intItem1 = intItem To intItem + 4
    If intItem1 < List1.ListCount Then
      strLine = strLine & " " & List1.List(intItem1)
    End If
  Next
  Print #1,strLine
Next

do you want to save all entries from the listbox?


open "c:\list.txt" for output as #1
for x=0 to list1.listcount - 1
print #1,list1.list(x) & " ";
if x/5 = fix(x/5) then
print #1,""
end if
next x

...for the loop this would work or looping through indexes

Dim X As Integer

For X = 0 To listbox1.ListCount - 1
   listbox1.Selected(X) = True
   Print #1, Listbox1.text

Next X

use this:

Dim Filename As String
Dim iItem As Long

Filename = "c:\output.txt"

' Overwrite existing data
Open Filename For Output As #1

' Append to existing data
Open Filename For Append As #1

For iItem = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1

  ' Print one line in the textfile
  Print #1, List1.List(iItem)

  ' Print data on same line
  ' Print #1, List1.List(iItem);

Next iItem

Close #1

Sorry, that should have been For intItem1 = intItem To intItem + Step intColumns - 1 rather than For intItem1 = intItem To intItem + 4
