I have a list box with a numerous items. I want to put a spinbutton beside it so that the user can select and item to move up and down in the list. As they move it I want to adjust the data on the excel sheet accordingly. I know how to move the data. but i don't know how to link the spinbutton and control how to move the data as it is pressed up or down. Thanks

Try using the following code.  Change SpinButton1 to the name of the name of your spin button control and change ListBox1 to the name of your list box control.
Private Sub SpinButton1_SpinDown()
Call MoveListItem(True)
End Sub
 
Private Sub SpinButton1_SpinUp()
Call MoveListItem(False)
End Sub
 
Function MoveListItem(blnShiftDown As Boolean)
 
If ListBox1.ListIndex < 0 Or _
ListBox1.ListIndex = 0 And Not blnShiftDown Or _
ListBox1.ListIndex = ListBox1.ListCount - 1 And blnShiftDown Then Exit Function
 
Dim i As Integer
Dim strListItems() As String
ReDim strListItems(ListBox1.ListCount - 1)
 
For i = 0 To ListBox1.ListIndex - IIf(blnShiftDown, 1, 2)
    strListItems(i) = ListBox1.List(i)
Next i
strListItems(i) = ListBox1.List(ListBox1.ListIndex + IIf(blnShiftDown, 1, 0))
strListItems(i + 1) = ListBox1.List(ListBox1.ListIndex - IIf(blnShiftDown, 0, 1))
 
For i = ListBox1.ListIndex + IIf(blnShiftDown, 2, 1) To ListBox1.ListCount - 1
    strListItems(i) = ListBox1.List(i)
Next i
 
ListBox1.List = strListItems
 
End Function

You can swap List items using just a temp string. No intermediate array needed.
Following code moves List items Up or Down, checks for upper;lower bounds, and updates the ListIndex.

Option Explicit
 
Private Sub Form_Load()
   Dim i As Long
   For i = 1 To 10
      ListBox1.AddItem "Item " & Chr(64 + i)
   Next
End Sub
 
Private Sub SpinButton1_SpinDown()
   Dim SelIndex         As Long
   Dim Temp             As String
   
   SelIndex = ListBox1.ListIndex
   If (SelIndex >= 0) And (SelIndex < ListBox1.ListCount - 1) Then
      Temp = ListBox1.List(SelIndex + 1)
      ListBox1.List(SelIndex + 1) = ListBox1.List(SelIndex)
      ListBox1.List(SelIndex) = Temp
      ListBox1.ListIndex = ListBox1.ListIndex + 1
   End If
End Sub
 
Private Sub SpinButton1_SpinUp()
   Dim SelIndex         As Long
   Dim Temp             As String
   
   SelIndex = ListBox1.ListIndex
   If SelIndex > 0 Then
      Temp = ListBox1.List(SelIndex - 1)
      ListBox1.List(SelIndex - 1) = ListBox1.List(SelIndex)
      ListBox1.List(SelIndex) = Temp
      ListBox1.ListIndex = ListBox1.ListIndex - 1
   End If
End Sub
