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.

I have a make table query that I run daily. One of the fields of the query
is a date field. The source table for the query treats the information as a
text string in a date format that is not recognized by access. I have
created formula that parses the string to put it into standard "mm/dd/yy"
format. However, when I run the make table query it treats the date field as
text. This is a problem because I use a form to hold the criteria for a

I have a number of formulas that are displaying the result using the value

When some cells of the data series have #N/A values returned by formulas,
the corresponding chart fails.
But if the #N/A values are manually entered into those same cells, the chart
