First of all in your vb project you need to go to tools/refrences and select the microsoft scripting runtime. This will allow you to open the file and read a line at a time.

Something like:

Dim f As Scripting.FileSystemObject
Dim x As TextStream

Set f = New FileSystemObject
x = f.OpenTextFile(myfilename, ForReading, , TristateFalse)
Do While Not x.AtEndOfStream
    myStr = x.ReadLine
    ListBox.AddItem myStr
set f = nothing
