Data from ListBox to DataReport

Hello!
Can anyone please tell me how I can get the data, that a user writes as input to a listbox, into a textbox in my data report. The listbox can have several lines depending on how many lines the user gives as input. I need every line in my datareport. After the line is written into a textbox you add it to the listbox with a button. Is it possible to add the line to the RptTextBox with the same button as to the listbox. I haven't done the program, so I really don't know how the listbox works... You could say I'm quite lost.

I hope someone understood something? This is my first time using a listbox, I know how to get the data from a textbox to the report. What do I have to do different? A short example of the code could help me.

Thank You in advance!

I was just trying to solve my problem with the listbox and managed to store the content of the last input in a variable. That way I got a part of the data I need to the datareport. Is there a way to store everything that is given as input in different variables? I guess this is not the smartest way of doing this. Could someone please help me?

use the method following. u have to reference 'Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.x'

Public Sub ShowReport()
    Dim rsTemp As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim i As Integer
   
    '// Create a temperory recordset and fill listbox items in that recordset
    Set rsTemp = New ADODB.Recordset
    With rsTemp
        With .Fields
            .Append "Field1", adVarChar, 64, adFldIsNullable
        End With
        .Open
       
        For i = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
            .AddNew Array("Field1"), Array(List1.List(i))
        Next i
    End With
   
    '// Set datasource of the report to temperory recordset
    '// and set 'Text1' (rptTextBox) to show contents of Field1
    With DataReport1
        Set .DataSource = rsTemp
        With .Sections("Section1").Controls
            .Item("Text1").DataField = "Field1"
        End With
        .Show
    End With
End Sub

i hope this is enough

Thanks for your help!
I still have a problem getting all lines from the listbox to the textbox. The rptTextBox only shows the first line that is given as input. Should I use several rptTextBoxes or how can I solve this problem?
