I have a List Box with 4 columns,

And I insert the data with command

lst1.AddItem rst!col1 & ";" & rst!col2 ...(where rst is recordset)

If the rst!col1 will contain ";" (this specific character,for example "text1;text2" ) it will not work correctly.

How can I fix this problem

Thanks.

do you want to replace that semicolon with another character

if so, you can use the Replace command

newText = Replace(OldText,"ReplaceFrom","ReplaceTo"

or you could do this, which is probably better

lst1.AddItem chr$(34) & rst!col1 & chr$(34) & ";" & chr$(34) & rst!col2 & chr$(34) & ";" ....

stick chr$(34) - equivalent of double quotes, around the field

The AddItem method doesnt work full stop in MS-Access, to my understanding.

To fill a listbox in this way you would need to set the rowsourcetype property to 'Value List' and then use code like this:-

lst1.rowsource = rst!col1 & ";" etc etc..

That should work.  The AddItem method is Visual Basic only.

lst1.AddItem chr$(34) & rst!col1 & chr$(34) & ";" & chr$(34) & rst!col2 & chr$(34) & ";" ....

chr$(34) is the same as a double quote

what we are doing is wrapping our field with double quotes. This should then force it to take the full value and not interpret the field

I did a little test, created a value list listbox, defined some constants

Private Const X1 = "rst1"
Private Const X2 = "rs;t2"
Private Const X3 = "rst3"
Private Const X4 = "rst4"


    List1.RowSource = X1 & ";" & X2 & ";" & X3 & ";" & X4

produced 2 rows instead of one - it used the semi-colon as defined in X"


    List1.RowSource = Chr$(34) & X1 & Chr$(34) & ";" & Chr$(34) & X2 & Chr$(34) & ";" & Chr$(34) & X3 & Chr$(34) & ";" & Chr$(34) & X4 & Chr$(34)

produced just 1 row - and the 2nd column contained rs;t2
