We can use several methods to fill a listbox & combobox. If we know the list contents at design time and list never changes , we define list item in properties window.The list property holds the list of items for a listbox or combobox. To define the List property at design time, select the control and scroll the properties window to the List property.

 You may need to use two subscripts to identify tabular data, where data are arranged in rows and columns. To define a two-dimentional array or table, the Dim statement specfies the number of rows and columns in the array. The row is horizontal and the column is vertical.

Sometimes, array are referred to as tables or subscripted variables, all referenced by the same name. When we use a control array, the individual controls are referenced as optCoffee(0) or optCoffee(1). The same notation is used with variable arrays. Therefore, in an array for storing names we may have strName(0), strName(1), strName(2) and so on.
