Read ListView Items by Column Name

Hi, We use listView in our vb.net project (VB 2005). up until now we've been Referencing the item and sub item by index.  We'd like to change that and Reference item by it's column name.
for example:
it we have four columns in our list. i
Column1, Column2,Column3,Column4

current Code
        For i As Integer = 0 To listView1.Items.Count - 1

We'd like to use listView1.Items(i).SubItems("Column1").Text

I can't figure out how to do this currently, because it's not working right now.
