VB.Net - Transfer Items from Listview to Listview Help

Experts: please help me figure out the best way to do this...if it's possible.

Currently I have two listviews...Listview1 has a list items that the user can double click on to move to the the 1st column of the empty Listview2...this works fine.  What I need to do now is to add two more columns to Listview2 that the user needs to have the ability to edit.  Specifically, Listview2 has 3 columns with the following characteristics:

Listview2:
- Column1: items come from Listview1 and the column is locked so the user cannot edit (this part is completed)
- Column2: items are to be keyed-in by the user after an item has been added to column1 so the column should be unlocked (not done...need help with this)
- Column3: each row should have a drop down with a list of item names that were keyed into column2 (not done...need help with this)

Is this possible?  How do I do this keeping in mind I have Column1 of Listview2 working but not columns2 & 3?

While I've built this using Listviews I'm not wetted to them...maybe a datagridview is better or some other control?

Thank you.

Listview columns text cannot be edited, only the text for each item can be edited, which corresponds to the first column of a listview in Details view. Consider to use another control, as a DataGridView or any 3rd party.

Hope that helps.

Roland, if I were to use a datagridview can you recommend some code that would work for this situation (described above)?

Thank you.
