I'm trying the following code to list the data presented in a list box.  But I don't get the actual text that I'm searching for...
It's a list box of paths to various drawings!  When I run it I get various numbers...  There are no columns associated with this if I'm correct.

For n = 0 To frmList.lstPaths.ListCount - 1

If frmList.lstPaths.Selected(n) = True Then myItem = frmList.lstPaths.ItemData(n)

MsgBox myItem

next n
