                    .AddItem Trim(RsType("Book"))
                    .AddItem Trim(RsType("cost"))

or you can set fixed length font (e.g Courier New) for list box, and try sthg like this
const MaxLen =15

   If Not RsType.EOF Then
            With ctrControl
                Do Until RsType.EOF
                    .AddItem m_FormatItem(RsType("Book"), maxLen) & "|"  & m_FormatItem(RsType("cost"), maxLen) & "|" & m_FormatItem(RsType("list"), maxLen)

                   .ItemData(.NewIndex) = RsType("id")
                    RsType.MoveNext
                Loop
            End With
        End If

Private Function m_FormatItem(Itm As String, ItemLen As Integer) As String
    m_FormatItem = Trim(Itm) & Space(ItemLen - Len(Itm))
End Function

where maxlen is "column" width - you have to be sure that string from rs is not larger than maxlen
