exce 2003 vba...

I have the following userform loading a "listbox" from a sheet range...

I want to convert to ListView...to make the sorting easier

I used\
ListView1.RowSource = "List!" & usedRng.Address

But I just got a blank grid ?

Thanks

Public Sub LoadData()

      Dim usedRng As Range
      Sheets("List").Activate
      
      
    Cells.Select
    Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("A1"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess, _
        OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom, _
        DataOption1:=xlSortNormal
      
      
      
      
      
      ' get the rnge from the spreadsheet
         DetermineUsedRange usedRng
           ' select the range for the listbox
            ListBox1.RowSource = "List!" & usedRng.Address

There is no RowSource property. Here's a sample showing how to load it from a range and how to implement column sorting (just click on a column header)

rorya, Thanks, So I was debugging.. The column Number and Row count will be determined always by the code correct...?

The code loads the contiguous range from A1 on the current sheet, if that's what you mean?
