Experts,

All I wish to do is with the use of 2 command buttons move a selected item in a listbox up and down in position depending on which command button is pressed..

Ok, this is a little tricky but not too difficult:

Private Sub cmdDown_Click()
    Dim strItem As String
    Dim intData As Integer
    Dim intIndex As Integer
    intIndex = List1.ListIndex
    If intIndex = 0 Then
        Exit Sub
        'as we are at the top
    End If
    strItem = List1.List(intIndex)
    intData = List1.ItemData(intIndex)
    List1.RemoveItem intIndex
    List1.AddItem strItem, intIndex + 1
    List1.ItemData(intIndex + 1) = intData
    List1.ListIndex = List1.NewIndex
End Sub

Private Sub cmdUp_Click()
    Dim strItem As String
    Dim intData As Integer
    Dim intIndex As Integer
    intIndex = List1.ListIndex
    If intIndex = List1.ListCount - 1 Then
        Exit Sub
        'as we are at the bottom
    End If
    strItem = List1.List(intIndex)
    intData = List1.ItemData(intIndex)
    List1.RemoveItem intIndex
    List1.AddItem strItem, intIndex - 1
    List1.ItemData(intIndex - 1) = intData
    List1.ListIndex = List1.NewIndex
End Sub

Looks like I got the test for top and bottom the wrong way round, here is a better attempt;

Private Sub cmdDown_Click()
    Dim strItem As String
    Dim intData As Integer
    Dim intIndex As Integer
    intIndex = List1.ListIndex
    If intIndex = List1.ListCount - 1 Then
        Exit Sub
        'as we are at the top
    End If
    strItem = List1.List(intIndex)
    intData = List1.ItemData(intIndex)
    List1.RemoveItem intIndex
    List1.AddItem strItem, intIndex + 1
    List1.ItemData(intIndex + 1) = intData
    List1.ListIndex = List1.NewIndex
End Sub

Private Sub cmdUp_Click()
    Dim strItem As String
    Dim intData As Integer
    Dim intIndex As Integer
    intIndex = List1.ListIndex
    If intIndex = 0 Then
        Exit Sub
        'as we are at the bottom
    End If
    strItem = List1.List(intIndex)
    intData = List1.ItemData(intIndex)
    List1.RemoveItem intIndex
    List1.AddItem strItem, intIndex - 1
    List1.ItemData(intIndex - 1) = intData
    List1.ListIndex = List1.NewIndex
End Sub
