Try this way.
1. Load XML using  XMLDocument example here: http://vbnetsample.blogspot.com/2007/07/read-xml-content-by-xmldocument.html.2.
2. Get inner text of your node into string  - example under above document link also.
3. Split this string using split funciton of String class - example here http://www.dotnetperls.com/split-vbnet.
4. Assign array returned by Split function to your listbox.

Hello,

When I try to pass the data from my textbox (1-Data; 2-Data; 3-Data) to the listbox using the code below,

 C1NSN.Text = dtNSN.Rows(0).Item("NSN")
        Dim tmp() As String = C1NSN.split(";")
        For i As Integer = 0 To tmp.Length - 1
            ListBox1.Items.Add(tmp(i))
        Next

I receive the following error:

'split' is not a member of 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox'.

How do  i fix this error?

Thanks,

Victor

Can This also be done with a GridView instead of a Listbox?

C1NSN.Text = dtNSN.Rows(0).Item("NSN")
        Dim tmp() As String = C1NSN.Text.split(";")
        For i As Integer = 0 To tmp.Length - 1
            'ListBox1.Items.Add(tmp(i))
             GridView1.??????
        Next

Yes it can be done with grid.
Depending on grid you are using (datagrid or datagridview) you have to add column and then add rows with specific values in particular column.

HEre you can find some examples of using datagridview: http://www.dotnetperls.com/datagridview-vbnet.
