Here is the form load event
Private Sub Form_Load()
With DataEnvironment1
Load DataEnvironment1
Dim c As Integer
c = 8
Dim l As Integer
Dim tr As Integer
If .rsadd.State <> 0 Then .rsadd.Close
tr = .rsadd.RecordCount
Dim h As Integer
h = 200
l = 300
Dim txtintnextindex As Integer
Dim intnextIndex As Integer
Do Until intnextIndex = tr
txtintnextindex = Text1.UBound + 1
intnextIndex = Command1.UBound + 1
Load Text1(txtintnextindex)
Load Command1(intnextIndex)
Command1(intnextIndex).ZOrder 0
Text1(txtintnextindex).ZOrder 0
Command1(intnextIndex).Visible = True
Command1(intnextIndex).Top = h
Command1(intnextIndex).Left = l
Command1(intnextIndex).Caption = .rsadd.Fields("addname")
Text1(txtintnextindex).Text = .rsadd.Fields("ipaddress")
h = h + 700
If .rsadd.AbsolutePosition = c Then
l = l + 1700
h = 200
c = c + 8
End If
Command1(0).Visible = False
Text1(0).Visible = False
 'Label1.Caption = tr
End With
 Exit Sub
Form2.Caption = " Now displaying " & Space(1) & tr & " different addresses"
Form2.BackColor = &HC0FFFF

Here is the command1 code
Private Sub Command1_Click(Index As Integer)
Dim ti As Integer
ti = Index
Dim ad As String
ad = Text1(ti).Text
