create a select statement that would select all textbox items in your database. Then iterate over the result and use the Add method of the ListBox control.

It's very simple.You can do this using DataReader object
I assume that you are using Access DataBase.
Dim objda As OleDbDataAdapter = New OleDbDataAdapter
Dim dr As OleDbDataReader
objda.SelectCommand = New OleDbCommand
objda.SelectCommand.Connection = Con 'Connection Object
objda.SelectCommand.CommandText = "Select FieldName FROM TableName"
            dr = objda.SelectCommand.ExecuteReader    'Exectuing query
        Catch ex As OleDb.OleDbException
            MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString)  'Providing Error Message
        End Try
        While dr.Read                     'Reading DataReader Items
            ListBox1.Items.Add(dr.Item(0))'Adding these Items Into ListBox
        End While
        dr.Close()                        'Closing DataReader Object

Add this code on Button_Click Event. :)

Before above code add one line dr.Close().This error comes if Data Reader Object already in used and not Closed Properly.
