is there a way to use the following code in MSAccess97

listbox.additem "foobar"
listbox.itemdata(listbox.newindex)=2

(in VB the property newindex can be set, but  Access dosn't support this property)

is there another way  ?

thanks for your suggestions

Try RowSource Property

List1.RowSource = List1.RowSource & ";" & "foobar"
List1.Refresh

You can try ListCount instead of NewIndex ?

The value list will work but it's limited by it's max stringsize...

Personally I prefer to use a (temp) table and link the listbox top the table, using:
currentdb.execute ("INSERT INTO tblListbox (item) VALUES ('footbar'")

This also will enable a sort sequence..

ops, read:

currentdb.execute ("INSERT INTO tblListbox (item) VALUES ('footbar'")
to "replace" the .additem
