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.

try this

ff = FreeFile
Open "C:\YourFileName.Ext" for Output as #ff

For a = 0 to List1.Listcount - 1
    If List1.Selected(a) Then
        Print #ff, List1.List(a)
    End If
Next a

Close #ff
