I do not know how to properly ask this question so I will give an example. I would like to have two list boxes on a form. The list boxes would have the following sample data in them"

Listbox 1                       Listbox 2
Apple                            Red
Orange                          Orange
Grape                            White

I want the user to be able to click on the word Apple in listbox 1 and drag over to Red on listbox 2, thus creating a mapping or relationship between the two. I would like the two words to be linked with a line. The line would move up and down the list as each list is scrolled.

I know this design is possible as I have used applications that do this. I just have no clue where to start the process.

Thanks
