VB code, need to load a drop dpown list with a List(Of String)

VB code, need to load a drop dpown list with a List(Of String)

(OP)
Can't find anything about how to do this in VB.
I think there is a way to load the drop down just by passing the list and not looping?
I want to sort the items A-Z which is why I'm doing this.

[code]
'load table names, in order to sort
Dim TableNames As New List(Of String)
TableNames.Add("Choose...")
TableNames.Add("SOWTimeReporting")
TableNames.Add("SOWVendors")
TableNames.Add("SOWLog")
TableNames.Add("SPMID")
TableNames.Add("SOWTimesheet")

'load list into drop down
'Me.ddlTableNames.Items.Add(TableNames)
For a = 1 To UBound(TableNames) ' <<<< Issue here


Next
[/code

This is the ASP board, so for server-side vBScript, I would suggest that forum222: Visual Basic(Microsoft): Version 5 & 6 is where you actually need to be.
