Multiselect applies to ListBox, and was introduced after Access 2. You can simulate it by adding a column to the list that shows either blank or X, and toggle that value when user clicks the row. If you base the list on a table you'll have to add a 1 char text field to the table, and update the table to make the X show. If you base the list on a query you'll have to add a 1 char text field to a table in the query that is one-one with the list box rows. After updating the table you may also have to requery the list.
