I want to add Dexcription to the 2nd column "Description" but instead it's added to the 1st column, "Name".  How do I correct this?  

      private void CreateUnityListView()
            NodeDetail.View = View.Details;
            //Create the columns for the listview for the Unity

            NodeDetail.Columns.Add("Name", "Name", 200, HorizontalAlignment.Left, 0);
            NodeDetail.Columns.Add("Description", "Description", 280, HorizontalAlignment.Left, 0);
            NodeDetail.Items.Add("Description", "Folder for context mappings", 7);

What are you dealing with here?  Not enough information?  What is NodeDetail?  Are you working with a ListView?  If you are then you need to add subitems to the item.

            NodeDetail.Items.Add(new ListViewItem(new string[] { "Description", "Folder for context mappings" }));
