I am at the moment using the following code to load listbox values from a single XML file.  
private string filepath = "C:\\IndexList.xml";

protected void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
 if (!IsPostBack)
 {
   DataSet dsIndexes = new DataSet("Indexes");
   dsIndexes.ReadXml(filepath);  
   lstIndexList.DataSource = dsIndexes.Tables[0];
   lstIndexList.DataTextField = dsIndexes.Tables[0].Columns[1].ToString();
   lstIndexList.DataValueField = dsIndexes.Tables[0].Columns[2].ToString();
   lstIndexList.DataBind();
 }
}

now i need to load multiple xml file into the same listbox depends on querystring "id" from a directory "c:\indexlist"

if the querystring is null, it should load listbox from all xml available in C:\indexlist directory else (if id is euqal to "abcd" it should load values from aml file abcd.xml.  How could i code this to work?

Alternatively I am thinking to use the following access database and retrieve the values based on group id value.
Table - Indexes
-------------------
Index_id
group_id
Index_name
Index_url

Table - Groups
------------------
group_id
group_name

Thanks

I do not quite understand your sense (I'm poor in english)
but I write some codes, hope this can help you a little :

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

        If Not Page.IsPostBack Then

            Dim dsIndexs As New DataSet("Indexes")

            Dim filePath As String = "C:\temp\"
            Dim queryString As String = Request.QueryString("id")
            ' check the "id" query string
            If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(queryString) Then
                ' "id" is not emptry or null, then load the xml file
                filePath += queryString + ".xml"
                dsIndexs.ReadXml(filePath)
            Else
                ' "id" is emptry or null, load all of the xml files in target dir
                Dim files As String() = Directory.GetFiles(filePath, "*.xml")
                For i As Integer = 0 To files.Length - 1
                    dsIndexs.ReadXml(files(i))
                Next
            End If

            ListBox1.DataSource = dsIndexs.Tables(2)
            ListBox1.DataTextField = dsIndexs.Tables(2).Columns(0).ToString()
            ListBox1.DataValueField = dsIndexs.Tables(2).Columns(1).ToString()
            ListBox1.DataBind()
        End If

    End Sub

to fill the data in the listbox , alternatively u can use the    lstIndexList.items.add method.
code

protected void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
 if (!IsPostBack)
 {
   DataSet dsIndexes = new DataSet("Indexes");
   dsIndexes.ReadXml(filepath);  
   lstIndexList.DataSource = dsIndexes.Tables[0];

dim i as integer
 for i=0 to dsindex.tables(0).rows.count-1
lstbox.items.add(dsindex.tables(0).rows(i)(columnnumberhere))
 next

 }
}


i dont know the c# systax so please be understood
