Hi just wonder how I can use commandbutton ( caption Letter A) click event to read names from an random file that just corespond to letter A in to an listbox.

In the click event
1) open the file
2) Start a loop, exit loop on EOF
3) Read a line
4) If line starts with "A" add it to listbox
5) End of loop
6) Close file

Thanks for the information, but if there is in the file servel names that start with letter a is´t better to convert the file to mdb and take it from there?

Start by explaining the problem in detail. I answered the question as you posted it. Now you are asking different questions that barely relate.
