Hello. This is a basic question, I'm sure. I am trying to print to a sequential file the individual items that I have selected from a list box. So far I have only been able to get the index number of the items to print, not the actual name of the item. How can I print the actual name of the list items when they are selected? Thanks.

For a = 0 to List1.Listcount - 1
    If List1.Selected(a) Then
