dynamic enum or auto list reords

I have a table with only 15 to 20 records and can go up to 50 records.
the flds are
Id , value

eg., 1 Techlog
       2 Stationlog
Is there any method where in i can use the records as enums, so that it would be coming in vb autolist so tht if i refer tht variable it would be easy to refer and code
like dynamically create enum like thing
public enum module
     iTechLog = 1
     iStationLog = 2
end enum

No.  Enums cannot be defined dynamically.
One approach you might try (if you haven't already) is to load those values into a combo dropdown list, and use the ID value as the ItemData.  That way when an item is selected, you can get the corresponding ItemData that you know is the database key.

If what you want is internal (ie not for the user), then just dynamically loading up an array with the values should get you similar results as the enum.
