I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is this an assignment?

If yes, posting assignment questions is against the EE policy, is what I read somewhere.

The filename does seem to indicate that it is home work.

No, that changed last year, not that I am encouraging it

Either read whole file and split on linebreaks or read line-by-line and add each line to array

Loop through the array and put the words that begin with the letter A-F into one list box, G-R into another list box, and the words that begin with S-Z in another listbox. Then output the number of words in each label above each listbox.
Loop through the array and in the loop check for the first character. You can also sort the array or use Linq instead
