Hi zachvaldez,
Since you probably are using a node object to add items to the tree, try using the node's Tag property for your itemdata

if ur index values are unique then u can keep index as Node key , but preceed it with a text
that is
'   here ":::" is used as a unique text put before ur index value
'Also if u want to get it back just replace this ":::"
'    Index=CLng(Replace(nd.Key,":::",""))

Dim nd as Node
Set nd = TreeView1.Nodes.Add(, , ":::" & Your_Index_Number , "Node_Text")
