Getting a data value from a list box in Access

I have a list box that's based on a query.  When the user selects an item from the list box, how to I obtain the value of the item selected.  Specifically, the first item in the list box contains the primary key of a table.  When the user selects the item in the list box, I want to assign the row's PK to a variable.  Any suggestions are appreciated!  Thanks!

Assuming the PK is in the first column:

YourVariable = me.lstYourListbox.column(0)

(add that code to the double-click event of the listbox, or to another event)

You should have the Bound Column (in properties) of the list box set to 1, if the PK is the first item. You can then assign it to a variable by using something like:

i = me.lstMyLstBox.value
