The code would look basically the same as the the sample I gave you that deals with only one checkbox.  Create a new project and add a Label.  To the right of the Label, add then CheckBoxes, Check1 thru Check10.  Now for the Label and all the CheckBoxes, set the Index property to 0 (zero):

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim idx As Integer
    idx = Label1.Count
    Load Label1(idx)
    Label1(idx).Left = Label1(0).Left
    Label1(idx).Top = Label1(idx - 1).Top + Label1(idx - 1).Height + 15
    Label1(idx).Visible = True
    Load Check1(idx)
    Check1(idx).Left = Check1(0).Left
    Check1(idx).Top = Check1(idx - 1).Top + Check1(idx - 1).Height + 15
    Check1(idx).Visible = True

    Load Check2(idx)
    Check2(idx).Left = Check2(0).Left
    Check2(idx).Top = Check2(idx - 1).Top + Check2(idx - 1).Height + 15
    Check2(idx).Visible = True

    Load Check3(idx)
    Check3(idx).Left = Check3(0).Left
    Check3(idx).Top = Check3(idx - 1).Top + Check3(idx - 1).Height + 15
    Check3(idx).Visible = True

    ' Code repeats for Check4 thru Check9
    ' ...
    ' ...
    ' ...

    Load Check10(idx)
    Check10(idx).Left = Check10(0).Left
    Check10(idx).Top = Check10(idx - 1).Top + Check10(idx - 1).Height + 15
    Check10(idx).Visible = True
End Sub

Dim fso As New FileSystemObject
    Dim f As File
    Dim fsoStream As TextStream
    Dim Lines() As String
    Dim intPrev As Integer
    Dim LineCount As Integer
    Dim Lastchk As Integer
    Set f = fso.GetFile("c:\users.txt")
    Set fsoStream = f.OpenAsTextStream(ForReading)
    Lines() = Split(Trim(fsoStream.ReadAll), vbCrLf)
    'MsgBox ("No. of Lines: " & UBound(Lines))
For i = 1 To UBound(Lines) + 1
intPrev = i - 1
Load chk(i)

'n = chk(i).Move(0, 10, "", "")
chk(i).Top = chk(intPrev).Top + chk(intPrev).Height
chk(i).Caption = "Checkbox " & i & Name
chk(i).Visible = True
'chk(0).Visible = False

Next i

    Set f = fso.GetFile("C:\users.txt")
    Set fsoStream = f.OpenAsTextStream(ForReading)
    ' Read the file line by line, printing the results to the Form
    Do While Not fsoStream.AtEndOfStream
       'ReDim strArray(cntLineCount)
       intLine = fsoStream.AtEndOfLine
        'Debug.Print strLine

        LineCount = UBound(Lines)
ReDim strArray(LineCount)
For x = 0 To LineCount
        strArray(x) = fsoStream.ReadLine
        'MsgBox strArray(i)
        'lblUsers(i).Caption = strArray(i)
        chk(x).Caption = "Save : " & strArray(x) & " ? "
        'Lastchk = UBound(x)
        chk(LineCount + 1).Visible = False
Next x

        cntLineCount = fsoStream.Line
       ' MsgBox cntLineCount
    Set fsoStream = Nothing
    Set f = Nothing
    Set fso = Nothing

I did it like that because when I put the items in the 2nd loop in the first loop it kept crashing out because it said it would pass the end of file. Because I added 1 to the UBound(Lines). I hope this helps :)

FYI - You need a reference to the Microsoft Runtime Scripting which you can do by going to Project --> References and checking the checkbox next to it in that list :)

I forgot to mention that it reads the amount of lines from the text file and then that determines how many controls need to be created with regards to the checkboxes and then it loads each Name from the text file into each of the controls.

In the code, put this line of code in general declarations :

Private strArray() As String   '<-- This is the string array for holding all of the values

For this to work you need one checkbox which is called chk and you change the Index property from null to a 0 ( zero ) and then the coding does the rest with regards to creating the control :)
or you can use some sort of CheckedListBox
