Has anyone any ideas on how to get two listboxes on a form to scroll together - by that I mean when scrolling down one list box then the other one scrolls also. Similarly when scrolling the second one then the first one should also scroll. Thanks in advance.

This will work better:
Private Sub Form_Load()
List1.ListIndex = 0
List2.ListIndex = 0
End Sub

Private Sub List1_KeyUp(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
List2.ListIndex = List1.ListIndex
End Sub

Private Sub List1_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
List2.ListIndex = List1.ListIndex
End Sub

Private Sub List1_Scroll()
List2.TopIndex = List1.TopIndex
End Sub

Private Sub List2_KeyUp(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
List1.ListIndex = List2.ListIndex
End Sub

Private Sub List2_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
List1.ListIndex = List2.ListIndex
End Sub

Private Sub List2_Scroll()
List1.TopIndex = List2.TopIndex
End Sub

I haven't tried it yet Royster, but I'll give it a go shortly - thanks, I'll let you know.

Thanks Royster, that works nicely (the second one). The only thing I did notice though is that if integral height is set to false, then although the code still works fine, sometimes it can give the "appearance" that the selected items in each list are not in line with each other, even if the font sizes and lists are the same size. But thanks, that's very useful.

Try adding the List1.TopIndex = List2.TopIndex line to each event (or List2.TopIndex = List1.TopIndex )
