its been a while for me an VB6
but it goes along the lines of
your listbox is called ListView1

you say
listview1.columnheaders.add "First"
listview1.columnheaders.add "Second"
listview1.columnheaders.add "Third"

dim x as new listviewitem
x.value = "Value One"
x.subitems(1) = "Value Two"
x.subitems(2) = "Value Three"
listview1.items.add(x)

Open in new window

While you can have multiple columns in a listbox, you really don't want to since multicolumn listboxes are hard to work with. You should use a listview control instead. The Lisview control is a part of Microsoft Windows Common Controls-3 6.0. Here's a complete example of using a listview and adding sort arrows to the column headers.
