Variable uses and automation type not supported in visual basic

I am trying to write records to a vb list box and one field is of the "time" variable type.  I get the error message indicated in the post title even when I try to write it as CStr(value).  Any ideas?

Here is my code:
    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    sql = "SELECT Bib, Chip, Time, Reader, Antenna FROM RawRFID WHERE EventID = " & lEventID
    rs.Open sql, conn, 1, 2
    If rs.RecordCount > 0 Then
        RawReads = rs.GetRows()
        ReDim RawReads(4, 0)
    End If
    Set rs = Nothing
    For i = 0 To UBound(RawReads, 2)
        lstRawData.AddItem i + 1 & vbTab & RawReads(0, i) & vbTab & RawReads(1, i) & vbTab & RawReads(2, i) & vbTab & RawReads(3, i) & vbTab & RawReads(4, i)
    Next i

Open in new window

Does it work if you don't try to add that field?

Why are you using a listbox with "coulmms" created with tabs rather than a listview or some type of grid?

In Access could you convert the problem field to some other type before you try to add the data to the listbox?

The problem is that, as I write it to the array, I can't transfer it to the list box even if I convert it to a string.  I think I will just change the data type.  I don't think it needs to be Time necessarily.  I will leave this open in the event someone has a better solution.

I think I will just change the data type.
That's what I was suggesting in my previous post.
