I am trying to use the list box function from the control
toolbar. I am not sure how to get the listings I want in
the list box. Is there certain VB coding that is needed?
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
No VBA code needed. In Design mode, click on your list box and select
Properties from the Control toolbox (or right-click your list box and select
Properties), then scroll down to the ListFillRange Property and indicate the
cell range address that has the items you want to appear in the box (i.e.,
A1:A10). Then exit out of design mode and test your list box.

Microsoft 2005, RMS 1.3 - After doing some database cleaning and inputing
correct item costs, I sent worksheets from HQ to all stores of the new
correct cost. Pushed them through HQ Client, and checked to see if they
changed in the stores. Affirmative. One week later, I noticed the item cost
had changed to some weird figure on every single item cost change I had made
and then others I had not touched. I went through my list and changed them
once again in HQ, sent the proper worksheets, pushed the worksheets thru, and
the changes were made. A few days later, the item costs changed a...how do i view different mail boxes

...Concatenate Multi-Select List Box Items
I need to use the chosen items in a multi-select List Box as concatenated
text in another control on a subform. This text will be part of a large
amount of concatenated text. How do I do this? I did find info here about
using such items in a query but it was way over my head and I couldn't figure
out how to convert that idea to this issue so please don't just refer me to
that w/o some other explanation for this novice.
For example, if the user selects: Frt Bumper, Grille, & Headlamp in the
List Box, I want to then somehow concatenate those selections into a sente...Report with Negate Filter

Is it possible to remove a series from a pie chart without the percentages of

rows, the labels change so that the whole pie still adds up tp 100%.
Thank you! Denise
A pie is supposed to add up to 100%, isn't it? That's what pie charts are

I am trying to change a free text field to a drop down menu in my
current database, that already has data entered for this particular
field, in order to avoid multiple versions of the same organization
that are just typed in differently.
I'm assuming that I'll need to recode the different versions of an
entry to make them uniform but after that, I'm unsure how to proceed
so I won't lose any data. Is this possible or will I need to delete
the field, recreate it as a drop down and then re-enter the data?
Thanks in advance!

Someone sent me an Excel document where each of the cells in I1:I312 are
combo boxes. When you click off of those cells, the down arrow
disappears. The list for the combo boxes are cells AA1 and AB1 (AA1 is
New and AB1 is Existing). Please explain how this was done? Also, can
you please tell me if it is possible to make New and Existing autocorrect
entries. So even though the choices are New and Existing, if you hit N,
New appears, and if you hit E, Existing appears. Thanks!!
