Dim text1x As String
Dim Text2x As String
Dim Text3x As String
Dim aText() As String
Dim i As Integer

    For i = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
 
    aText = Split(List1.List(i), " ")
    On Error Resume Next
    text1x = aText(0)
    Text2x = aText(1)
If Text2x > 10 Then
    List2.AddItem List1.List(i)
    Frame3.Caption = List2.ListCount
End If
    Next i

-----------------------------
The list1.listbox has items like this name<space>number:

andy 12
sam 13
jason 100
maria 200

Im trying to split the name and the number, and if the number is greater then 10, it adds to list2.
its not working out, its adding names under 10 and names over 10.  i dont understand why. any suggestions.

Hi

I tried your code with an entry of sam 9 and it didnt add to the listbox so your code seems to work for me.

maybe you could try If CInt(Text2x) > 10 Then

this should make sure that Text2x is an integer for the comparison

I tried this and it worked fine. So I'm not sure why yours is not working.
If it were me when I do the compare I would use a CLng function to change the string to an integer
i.e. "If Text2x > 10 Then" I would change to "If CLng(Text2x) > 10  Then"
but like I said, I tried the code and it and it worked as you wanted it to.

        .Clear
        .AddItem "andy 12"
        .AddItem "sam 13"
        .AddItem "jason 100"
        .AddItem "maria 200"
        .AddItem "sam 3"
    End With
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
   
    Dim text1x As String

        text1x = aText(0)
