Refresh listbox from field being edited


I have a form containg several fields and also containing a list box.

I want the list box to respond while entering data (or modifying) one
of the fields.

I suppose I must trigger some event as keystrokes are being pressed.

The problem is that while editing the field it is not yet stored in
the table, so I can't retrieve it's date in order to set and apply a
filter to thre listbox.

How do I get the content of the field before it has been stored? And
what about the same in a new record?

strictly speaking, forms don't "contain" fields in the sense you mean, a
form's RecordSource contains fields. the form contains *controls* that are
bound to fields in the form's RecordSource. that's a fine point, that
probably only really matters when what you're after, as in this instance, is
the value entered in the control - before it is written to the field in the

try refering to the control's Text property, rather than the default Value
property, as

Data refresh problem
I downloaded an xl template worksheet which has links to MSN Money website (for updating stock prices) As I have xl97, and the worksheet was created in a later version, I saved it as a xl97 worksheet. When I 'refresh data' it downloads the latest prices.........sometimes. More usually I get the message 'xl has encountered a problem, and needs to close..' Any ideas on what might be causing this? If I knew how the link works, I could start with a new worksheet, but I can't find any web queries relating to this worksheet. Brickcounter Brickcounter, If you know where a...

Possible to turn off graph refresh temporarily?
Graphs in 2007 are very slow to refresh after refreshing a data connection. When I remove the 30 graphs in my spreadsheet and refresh the data connections, it refreshes in less than a second. When the graphs are present, it's more than 10 seconds. Is there any way (VBA?) to disable the refreshing of the graphs until after the data connection refreshes have completed, and then to re-enable them? Kind of like a "manual calculation" mode for graphs. Thanks! I'm not aware of anything that allows you to stop the graph refreshing as such. However, you might be able to get ...

Hidden fields in new emails
When I begin to type a new message, the text doesn't appear (the words are hidden) until spell check/sending/or printing. When I select the icon for the font color of text (black) it begins to show my typing as I'm composing the message, but the other words (anything I typed in the 'hidden field') only shows up in the spell check portion and remains hidden. Why are my messages starting with this hidden field and how do I get rid of it? I'm sure I must have pressed some command inadvertently as it was not always working like this.

edit suggest names when completing To, cc and bcc fields
Apparently I don't have an Address Book linked to Outlook 2000. No matter, because I seem to be ok with the suggest names feature, which I guess is not Address Book-linked, but linked to a memory bank of names and corresponding addresses typed in during the past. However, here is my question: How do you edit this Suggest Names list? In particular, A. Suppose you want to stop Outlook from suggesting a particular name because it is not current anymore. Worse, you might inadvertantly click on it and send msg to somebody you don't want to receive it. Is there a way to delet...
