vb.net and AS400

I have to develop a VB.net application where I download some data from an IBM system I(AS400) to interface with some Microsoft products. The data from the system i(AS400) will be a list of vendors and various data elements that will help me determine if they are the cheapest vendor. I will need to calculate if they are a cheap vendor or not by calculating the various data elements within vb.net application. I will then need to list the vendors from cheapest to most expensive in a list box. My question is what is the best way to store from the calculations the rank of the vendors as I am processing the data? If I was on an AS400 I would use a temporary work file and spit out the data. I'm not sure if this is possible with VB.net, or that using a data file in vb.net would too much overhead. I read stuff about collections, and hash tables, but I don't think duplicate keys are possible since I want my key to be the dollar amount. (I could have a few dollar amounts the same.) Anybody got any advice???

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Slacker,

You can store the data in the ListBox directly. You can set the Sorted property to True and the Listbox will sort the items as they are added.

Hope this helps.
