Highlight a record

As a beginner, I am having trouble getting the following to work

This works fine and lists all the Records I require

Private Sub Form_Load()
  Data1.DatabaseName = PathToDB
  Set Database = OpenDatabase(PathToDB)
  Set rs = Database.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM Fleet")
    'if no records,leave the sub
    If rs.EOF Then Exit Sub
   
    With rs
    .MoveLast
     MyTotalCount = .RecordCount
    .MoveFirst
   
 
   For iVal = 0 To MyTotalCount - 1
 
      lstFleet.AddItem "Registration  " + !RegNo
      .MoveNext
   Next iVal
End With
rs.MoveFirst

End Sub

However, I now want to click on one of the records and delete it.
I would also have expected the first record to be highlighted but no records are.
Also how do I get the record that is clicked, to highlight ?

yes, if I click them the item is highlighted.

I need it to respond to the click.

Also, I would like the first item highlighted when the items fill the list box to start with

To highlight the first record you need to add the following line to the end of your form load:

lstFleet.listindex = 1 (or 0 not 100%sure which is the first item)

To respond to a click on the list write code in the lstFleet_Click event.

When you want to delete an item use:

lstFleet.RemoveItem IndexOfItemToRemove

where IndexOfItemToRemove is the item (usually the current one) you want to delete. You will probably get this index number using lstFleet.ListIndex. I would put this code in the click of a button titled "Delete Item", or a right click menu if you get real ambitious :)

At the end of your Form_Load put

lstFleet.Selected(0) = True

This will select the first item on your list box.

To Delete records I assume you want to click on the item to delete, highlighting it, and then click on a button:

<---code begins--->

Private Sub cmdDelete_Click()
   
    For wsCount = 0 To lstFleet.ListCount - 1
        If lstFleet.Selected(wsCount) = True Then
            'Get the RegNo to delete by removing the "Registration  " from the list entry
            RemoveIt = Right(lstFleet.List(wsCount), (Len(lstFleet.List(wsCount))) - 14)
            'Search for the item to delete
            While Not rs.EOF
                If rs!RegNo = CDbl(RemoveIt) Then
                    rs.Delete
                    GoTo Removed
                Else
                    rs.MoveNext
                End If
            Wend
        End If
Removed:
    Next wsCount
    'Reset the list
    lstFleet.Clear
    If rs.RecordCount = 0 Then Exit Sub
    With rs
    .MoveLast
     MyTotalCount = .RecordCount
    .MoveFirst
     
   
    For iVal = 0 To MyTotalCount - 1
 
      lstFleet.AddItem "Registration  " + CStr(!RegNo)
      .MoveNext
    Next iVal
    .MoveFirst
    End With
    lstFleet.Selected(0) = True
End Sub

<---code ends--->

g_jones answer will remove the item from the list but will not remove the record from the database.  You have to use a rs.Delete to remove the record.

Note:  change the line -

If rs!RegNo = CDbl(RemoveIt) Then

to

If rs!RegNo = RemoveIt Then

if RegNo is a string field - in my code it is a numeric field.
