List Box Problem

Hi all. I'm an experienced Access programmer in the UK and I have just started getting a peculiar problem with some of me listbox controls in Access 2016. When I make the first selection in the listbox a 'ghost control' appears at the base of the listbox. The 'ghost control' disappears if I make any subsequent selections. Hopefully I have attached an image of the problem!!

Any ideas please?

Re: List Box Problem

Are any of the fields included in the Listbox Multivalued?

Re: List Box Problem

No, there is only one field and it is the year number

Re: List Box Problem

In design view "select all" from the ribbon this will expose all of items on the form. Sometimes we attempt to hide an element and we for get it's there, select all will show all elements and controls.

Re: List Box Problem

its the Edit List Item menu.
you can remove it on Design view of your form.
click on the listbox and on it's Property Sheet->Data->Allow Value List Edits: No.
