Compare Dataset with Listview Items VB 2005

Hello,
I hope that you can help me...
I need to compare a single column recordset with the contents of a listviews subitems.
This has to return a true or false. I know that this can be done with a loop but I was hopeful of a cool trick or subroutine that would accomplish this...

Any Ideas?

If the type of data on the recordset and in the listview items are the same, you can use the Contains method on the Listview.Items. Example:

if (lvListView.Items.Contains(value from recordset))
{
  found it!!!1
}

Thanks for the reply... The "Value from recordset" is a string?
If so I am getting an error the string cannot be converted to a listviewitem.

I think I made a mistake....
instead of using a string directly, you need to create a listviewitem there, like this:
new ListViewItem("value from recordset")
