Hello,

I was wondering if it's possible to get selected items from one list box and select the same items in another listbox?

Here is example code for what RealSnaD is talking about.

Presuming both lists have the same content in the same order:
---------------------------------------------------
Dim lCnt As Long

' loop through each item in list one
For lCnt = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1

    ' if item is selected, select same in list two
    If List1.Selected(lCnt) Then List2.Selected(lCnt) = True
Next lCnt
---------------------------------------------------
If lists are not same and you want to select item with same text:
---------------------------------------------------
Dim lCnt  As Long
Dim lCnt2 As Long
Dim sTxt  As String

' loop through each item in list one
For lCnt = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1

    ' check each list two item for same text
    If List1.Selected(lCnt) Then
        sTxt = List1.List(lCnt)

        For lCnt2 = 0 To List2.ListCount - 1

            ' if item has same text as list one item, select it
            If List1.List(lCnt) = sTxt Then List2.Selected(lCnt) = True
            Exit For
        Next lCnt
    End If
Next lCnt

Here is my code, and it's not working:

    For lCnt = 0 To Me.ClientByDate.ListCount - 1
       If Me.ClientByDate.Selected(lCnt) Then
            sTxt = Me.ClientByDate.ItemData(lCnt)
            For lCnt2 = 0 To Forms!frmFullReport!Client_List.ListCount - 1
                If Forms!frmFullReport!Client_List.ItemData(lCnt2) = sTxt Then
                    Forms!frmFullReport!Client_List.Selected(lCnt2) = True
                End If
            Next lCnt2
        End If
    Next lCnt

Any ideas y?

P.S.: List1.List(lCnt) was giving me an error, that's y i used List1.ItemData(lCnt)
