Very EASYquestion, which control to use?

I need the same funcionality as a standard ListBox provides, but multiple columns per line.
I mean a listitem consists of more corresponding datas as date, data, etc. And I need a header for all columns.

Which control to use?

I would suggest using a databound grid control if your data is in a database. If you are going to populate the grid manually you may want to use an msFlexgrid control (this can be a little complicated to use). The listview control affords the opportunity to include images in your grid as well as checkboxes or drop-down lists. Have a look at each of these and see what's best for you.

I dont't need db access, nor images, or dropdown, just strings. I need the most simple component to code.

the most simple component is the MSFlexgrid (in my opinion)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I suggest the ListView control:
check the "Microsoft Windows Common Controls version x.0" in project components, and you will have a bunch of controls, where the listview should do the trick:
* view -> Report to get the headers
You can configure the headers at design time or at runtime...

listview, bit tricky to use at first, here is an example

add reference to MS windows common controls, add a listview to your form then see this code

Private Sub Form_Load()

With ListView1

    Dim itmX As ListItem

    .View = lvwReport
    .ColumnHeaders.Add , "a", "column 1"
    .ColumnHeaders.Add , "b", "column 2"
    .ColumnHeaders.Add , "c", "column 3"
   
    .HideColumnHeaders = False
   
    Set itmX = .ListItems.Add(, "r", "item 1")
    itmX.SubItems(1) = "item2"
    itmX.SubItems(2) = "item3"
   
   
End With
   

End Sub
