I need to select data from a sting (in a listbox).

The string in the list box is this:
(txtEmployeeName.Text & ":" & vbTab & txtSsn.Text & ":" & vbTab & txtPieceWork.Text)

I need to extract the piecework integer (txtPieceWrk.Text)from the string in order to calculate it with the price.
 
So far I have this, but I keep getting error messages:
NOTE: PieceWorkPay is a private function.

  strEmplySel = lstEmployee.List(lstEmployee.ListIndex)
    intPieWrk = InStr(1, strEmplySel, ":")

    If intPieWrk > 0 Then
       
        sngTotal = PieceWorkPay(Mid$(strEmplySel, intPieWrk + 1))
   
    End If

Please Help!
Thanks,
Maryann
