    hi Viper, Use an array to store each word, from the very first word in the textbox start picking the words, while picking the word compare it with the words stored in the array. And if the word is a repeat then increment it i.e. here I am assumed that your array is a 2 dimensional array(word , increment). Once this is completed, Bind it with your list box. for this add items to the array list like: Canada 10 England 4 Regards, Royal

    Hi, I would be temped to use something like a dictionary or a hashtable. Split the string by the space character and then loop through the array returned adding each word to the dictionary. If an error occurs, then the word already exists, trap that error, and then increment the value in that word entry in the dictionary. I can't remember if you can bind a dictionary to a listbox, something tells me you can, but you can check it out from there. there are plenty of array controls for this type of work. HTH Si
