Here's a sample:

Dim rsList as ADODB.Recordset

Set rsList = new ADODB.Recordset

With rsList
.Open "SELECT CompanyName FROM Customers", "PROVIDER=SQLOLEDB;Integrated Security=SSPI;DATABASE=Northwind;SERVER=(local)", adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly, adCmdText

While Not(.EOF)
lstNames.AddItem .Fields(0).Value
.MoveNext
Wend
End With

I'm sorry, let me correct my question...i had succeeded to load the database field (Street Name field) into the listbox, i  did the random function to the field using SQL statement, but the problem is it was sequential random, what i want is a random result that is different everytime I start the application, and one more problem is i could not put randomize keyword inside the SQL statement, is there anyway to do random function outside the SQL statement but affect the result ot Street Name and put the random result into the listbox ?

Add an order by clause and use the information_schema views to get a column name.  The view has an ordinal position column which is numeric.  Use this value when selecting a column.  Since its numeric, you can use the RAND() function to get a random numeric value, and select the column name based on a comparison of the random number and the column's ordinal position.
