Please define scrambling? Do you mean put the list in a random order?

Below is some code for you. Create a form, add a listbox called List1, and 2 command buttons (Command1 and Command2)

Command1 will create an ordered list of 1 to 100
Command2 will scramble the list

run the scrambler is as much as you want to make it more random.

Option Explicit
Const NumberOfElements = 100

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim zI As Integer

For zI = 1 To NumberOfElements
List1.AddItem zI
Next zI
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
Dim zRnd As Integer
Dim zTmp As Integer
Dim zI As Integer

Call Randomize(NumberOfElements)
For zI = 0 To NumberOfElements - 1
zRnd = Int((NumberOfElements * Rnd) + 1)
If zRnd <> zI Then
zTmp = List1.List(zI)
List1.List(zI) = List1.List(zRnd)
List1.List(zRnd) = zTmp
End If
Next zI
End Sub

Let me know if this helps
Good luck
