Ok so I have the following script to pull information from a txt document, so I need to add another column to the information that is pulled.  However when I add another line to the code to try to add to the addtional column I keep getting errors.  So I must not have the script correct, thanks!

--------  Working Code  -------

    ' Declare variables
    Dim X1, X2, x3, x4 As String
    Dim i, xfile
    Dim NewItem As ListItem

    '  Set histroy file location
    xfile = "C:\Progra~1\Reflec~1\User\History.txt"
    ' Open histroy file for reading
    Open xfile For Input As #1

    'Set start value for list index
    i = 1

    ' Retrieve each record in history file until the end of file
    Do While Not EOF(1)
        ' Set date into columns for reading
        Input #1, X1, X2, x3, x4
       
        X1 = FormatDateTime(X1, 4)

        ' Add items to listview
        Set NewItem = lsvHis.ListItems.Add(, , (X1))
        NewItem.SubItems(1) = X2
        NewItem.SubItems(2) = x3
        NewItem.SubItems(3) = x4        

        ' Removes first line in text box from history ListView
        If lsvHis.ListItems.item(1) = "00:00" Then
            lsvHis.ListItems.Remove (1)
        End If

        ' Set number of records to textbox visible to reps
        txtNumber.Value = i - 1

        ' Set new value for list index before looping
        i = i + 1
    ' Loop for next record
    Loop
    ' Close History file
    Close #1

End Sub

--------  Break  --------

    ' Declare variables
    Dim X1, X2, x3, x4, x5 As String
    Dim i, xfile
    Dim NewItem As ListItem

    '  Set histroy file location
    xfile = "C:\Progra~1\Reflec~1\User\History.txt"
    ' Open histroy file for reading
    Open xfile For Input As #1

    'Set start value for list index
    i = 1

    ' Retrieve each record in history file until the end of file
    Do While Not EOF(1)
        ' Set date into columns for reading
        Input #1, X1, X2, x3, x4, x5
       
        X1 = FormatDateTime(X1, 4)

        ' Add items to listview
        Set NewItem = lsvHis.ListItems.Add(, , (X1))
        NewItem.SubItems(1) = X2
        NewItem.SubItems(2) = x3
        NewItem.SubItems(3) = x4
        NewItem.SubItems(4) = x5
       

        ' Removes first line in text box from history ListView
        If lsvHis.ListItems.item(1) = "00:00" Then
            lsvHis.ListItems.Remove (1)
        End If

        ' Set number of records to textbox visible to reps
        txtNumber.Value = i - 1

        ' Set new value for list index before looping
        i = i + 1
    ' Loop for next record
    Loop

Have you right clicked the Listview and added another column under the Column Headers Tab?
