checklistbox1.checkedindices will populate selected items. So you dont want to check again whether it is checked or not.

Just compare ur datarow value with each items in checklistbox1.checkedindices.

GOT IT TO WORK

        Do While MyReader.Read
            Dim i As Integer
            i = chkbxlstReq.Items.Count
            For i = 0 To chkbxlstReq.Items.Count - 1
                If chkbxlstReq.Items(i).ToString = MyReader.Item("jobcodes") Then
                    chkbxlstReq.SetItemCheckState(i, CheckState.Checked)
                End If

            Next
        Loop
