ListBox Question

I need to be able to read the value from a listbox that is only one line high.  I want the user to be able to click the up/down scroll bar (so it only shows one line of the listbox at a time), but not have to worry about actually clicking the item.  
The value must then be passed to another control to be written to a recordset.
What procedure or event do I use?  I have tried List1. Scroll but that doesn't seem to work.  As yet, I can only seem to get it to work once the user clicks the actual item.  This isn't suitable for my project.

Any ideas anyone???????????

Thanks...

put a listbox (list1) on a form, and run this code:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Form_Load()
    List1.AddItem List1.ListCount
    List1.AddItem List1.ListCount
    List1.AddItem List1.ListCount
    List1.AddItem List1.ListCount
    List1.AddItem List1.ListCount
    List1.AddItem List1.ListCount
   
End Sub

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


it works

Thanks Anthony.  I tried and just used List1.Text to check my response - Absolutely perfect!

Now I can proceed to the next problem!

Thanks again.
