In VB6, you can use this:

    Dim l_sTxt As String
    Dim l_sPc() As String, l_sPm() As String
    Dim l_lIdx As Long
    Dim l_oLi As ListItem
    
    Call ListView1.ListItems.Clear
    
    l_sTxt = Text1.Text
    If l_sTxt <> "" Then
        l_sPc = Split(l_sTxt, ",")
        For l_lIdx = LBound(l_sPc) To UBound(l_sPc)
            Set l_oLi = ListView1.ListItems.Add(, , CStr(l_lIdx + 1))
            l_sPm = Split(Trim(l_sPc(l_lIdx)), "-")
            Call l_oLi.ListSubItems.Add(, , CStr(l_sPm(0)))
            Call l_oLi.ListSubItems.Add(, , CStr(l_sPm(1)))
        Next l_lIdx
    End If

So you want to populate your listview with several columns (like http://www.developerfusion.co.uk/show/74/3/?bcsi_scan_165B90ACFD7A1518=eMkQIvd2u6XwTQZRpVb9+QUAAAA0SjQA)

To split your string into small pieces
Dim SplitStr()
SplitStr = Split(myTextbox.text, ",")

in example above you'll get
splitstr(0) = 1-5
splitstr(0) = 6-10
splitstr(0) = 11-15

Dim SplitStr()
SplitStr = Split(myTextbox.text, "-")
 
For intX = 0 To UBound(SplitStr)
   dim smallSplit()
   smallSplit = Split(splitstr(0),",")
   myListbox.listItems.add , ,smallSplit(0)
   myListBox.listItems(i).Subitems(1) = smallsplit(1)
next
