Use listboxs to select multiple answers for table
I'm currently using MSAccess 2000, and need to use a list box so users can
choose/ click on multiple answers (up to 5) that are then saved to the
underlying records in the table when the user clicks on the save button. I
have tried various ways to do this but all to no avail. Would really
appreciate some help/ guidance with this issue.
My form's name is frmInquiry, the underlying table that needs saving into is
named tblInquiryCalls and the individual records names within this table are
called Issue1 through to Issue5. The unbound list box on the form is called
I have a ListBox in a dialog. There are more places
(functions) from which strings can be added to that
I am wondering where is the best place to put the method
call SetHorizontalExtent, as the width of strings is know
just at run time. I don't want to call that function from
every place, from which a string is added to the listbox.
I would prefer to place that function in some WM_MESSAGE
handler, which would be called by a framework at every
time, the string is added to the listbox. I didn't find
such appropriate message. Can anybody tell me which

Hey, I have a form of records, and a listbox with all of the dates from said

record in the same listbox the last record displayed in the report, sort of
like printing the week ending.

I have a listbox (lst_Cables) which holds date and quantity of all the
entries made. I also have a textbox (txt_Start) this textbox displays
the date of the last entry in the lst_Cables. When the listbox is
cleared the date value in txt_Start remains however when the form is
closed and then re-opend the value in txt_Start is gone and an error
message appears instead. I'm assuming this occurs because the listbox
is empty and the default value of the textbox resets itself.
What I want to do is somehow to store the date value displayed in the
textbox (txt_start) so that when I re-open the fo...ListBox TextAlign-Property Question

There is no built-in way to do this, so you would have to write the
code yourself. Iterate over the SelectedItems collection, and call a
Delete query for each record.
Alternatively you can replace the listbox by a subform, which supports

in list and combo boxes do not lock the table because you aren't editing
