Assuming that the name of your connection object is oCONN and the field names to retrieve from the table are ID and Description.

Now, the following example use the List View control in Microsoft Common Controls 6.0
Add a list view control to the form and then use the code below to populate it.
Rename [YOUR TABLE] to the actual name of your table.

Again, assuming that you have already made a connection to the database.
'---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Private Sub Form_Load()
   
   On Error Resume Next
   
   Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
   Dim xx As String
   Dim oItem As MSComctlLib.ListItem
   
   With ListView1
      .View = lvwReport
      .GridLines = True
      .LabelEdit = lvwManual
      .Checkboxes = True
      .FullRowSelect = True
      '---------------------
      .ColumnHeaders.Clear
      .ListItems.Clear
      '---------------------
      .ColumnHeaders.Add , , "ID#"
      .ColumnHeaders.Add , , "Description"
   End With
   
   xx = "SELECT ID, Description FROM [YOUR TABLE]"
   
   rs.Open xx, oCONN, adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly, adCmdText
   
   Do Until rs.EOF
      DoEvents
      Set oItem = ListView1.ListItems.Add
      oItem.Text = rs("ID")
      oItem.SubItems(1) = rs("Description")
      rs.MoveNext
   Loop
   
End Sub

Ok I have figured out what i needed to do for a dynamic checkedlistbox.
 'This is used populate the checklistbox
        Dim items As String
        Dim r As Integer = 0
        Dim c As Integer = 1
        While r < xResourceT.GetData.Rows.Count
            items = CStr(xResourceT.GetData.Rows(r).Item(c))
            xCLBResource.Items.Add(items)
            r = r + 1
        End While
