Is it possible to save a users multiple selections in a listbox?  
I.E. I have a listbox with the following choices:
     Eastern
     Western
     Southern
     Northern

The multi-select property has been set to simple.

I want to be able to store the values selected by the user - so that when I return to the record, the users selections appear.

Thanks

if U Do it BOUND CONTROL ( ie set datasource,datafield Properties of normal combobox)

the dbase field will be integer saving index of combo
(ie 0,1,2,3)

U should then fill combo by programming (or even at design time in list property )

many other alternatives
1 use data combo with 2 tables
2 Do it all by prog (unbound control)

hope this helps

Example:

Public db As DAO.Database
Public rs1 As DAO.Recordset

In a Form:

.
.
FilterString = " Where "
        For i = 0 To ListBox.ListCount
            If ListBox.Selected(i) = True Then
                FilterString = FilterString & " IndChain.IndChain = '" & Replace$(ListBox.ItemData(i), "'", "''") & "' OR "
            End If
        Next i

If FilterString = " Where " Then MsgBox "No items selected.", vbExclamation, "Select Items to Search": Exit Sub Else FilterString = Left(FilterString, Len(FilterString) - 3)
        DoEvents
        temp = "SELECT DISTINCTROW Coy.CoyName " & _
               "FROM Coy INNER JOIN (IndChain INNER JOIN CustIndChain ON IndChain.IndChainID = CustIndChain.IndChainID) ON Coy.CoyID = CustIndChain.CoyID " & _
               FilterString & _
               " ORDER BY Coy.CoyName "
        Set db = CurrentDb()
        Set rs1 = db.OpenRecordset(temp)
       
.
.

Hope this help too
