    Unanswered: Listbox HELP

    I am having trouble with a listbox, I have a continuous form and when I click on a cell in the continuios form I need that to populate a listbox(on the same form) with the data I need. I am linking the listbox with the id field that match the continuous form and listbox.

    The problem that I am having is that the listbox is populating correctly but when I try and highlight a row in the listbox it will not highlight. The listbox is not locked and is enabled. Has anyone had this trouble before?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Just guessing, not being able to see your code, but when comboboxes/listboxes don't allow selections, the first thing that comes to mind is that the form's AllowEditions Property is set to No or that the form is non-updateable for some other reason, such as being based on a query that is read-only.
    Hope this helps!

    Can you explain how you did that as I think it may be the source of the problem.
