I am trying to write the code to be able to select an item in one
listbox and then have that item appear in a second list box. I do
not want more than 20 items to be selected from first listbox.

Hi
1. Do You want to select max 20 items at once or one at a time?
2. When do You want the selected item appear in the second listbox?

for I:= 0 to ListBox1.Count - 1 do
  if ListBox1.Selected[I] then
    ListBox2.Items.Add(listBox1.Items[I]);

Many thanks - would it make any difference if I
am using a DBListbox as listbox1?

Agree - it doesn't seem to work. What would work in this case? I am transferring data
form a dbcontrolgrid into dblistbox1 and now need to allow users to select items in
dblistbox1(maximum total selection not greater than 20) and have then transfered to
a second listbox.

Not quite.
Multiselect can be set at runtime.
What I mean was the trouble with unwanted change of data in database.

Right,  multiselect can be used at runtime, if you use the Selection array
however, you can't physically select from the OnClick event....and show the highlighted selections

designed for one selection .....
