    Listbox Click event

    Can how a listbox is populated effect it's click event? To my surprise clicking in my listbox does NOT select the row clicked, as expected Instead row 1 acquires a dotted line and clicking anywhere else has no effect. Also the list box click event does not fire. I have set Allow Value List Edits...

    Writing SQL

    With a Select statement, do you really need TableName.FieldName ? It seems to work with just the field name, but maybe there's a downside to this ?

    I wonder if anyone may have a resolution for the refreshing as any row in the subform is clicked? The problem is caused by (or as) the pictures load. Many thanks for any help.

    List box behaviour

    I have two Forms each with (what should be) identical listboxes. There are no Form events or code and the listboxes are bound to a table and populated as expected. When I click on the Form2 list box, that row or line is selected, and that happens for any row. But click anywhere on Form 1's list...

    LIstbox delimiters

    Was there ever a solution found for including commas and semicolons in a (single column) listbox without them bring taken as a field delimiter? I read that replacing a semicolin with a comma worked - but it didn't for me. Both cutoff the text.

The click event is wanted for each row so I have used a listbox but leading spaces are ignored. Would some other control be better? I intend to...

    Problem with subForm On Current event

    I have some sub Forms on main Form. One has an on current event and this fires before the Main Forms Load event which sets up things the SubForms current event needs. (At least it appears so by stepping through). I can circumvent this with some hacks but wonder how it might be resolved...

    Adding text to a Form

    I seem to remember (but may not have been Access) that you could put text directly onto a Form without needing a textbox? Is this possible? If not, is the text box width & height be set to equal Form Width & Height - and in the Form Load event or in Properties?

    If the criteria for FindFirst contains an apostrophe what is the correct syntax? I have a workaround using Replace but it's messy and I suspect a 'proper' method exists.
