Has anyone been able to put a little icons in a listbox in MS Access? I think it is easier in VB but I have not seen it done in Access. Is that a possibility?

thanks that got me started off searching in the right areas - and I found a ton of useful stuff. But the bottom-line is that i still haven't been able to do that. Most of the examples are in VB. I want to do this in MS Access.

thanks.

You can use the Listview Control in Access.

I bought the Component Toolbox ... blows away M$ controls.  You can download and try for free - fully functional ... with Access MDB examples and HELP files.

Does this have a place i can copy the code into my application?

Is there any actual code I can get that does this?

Not sure what you mean?

You install the Component Toolbox, which creates some folders with Access MDB examples.  Also, from within Access, for the Insert ActiveX control on the menu, you can add any of the components to a form, the use code examples from the example databases, in conjunction with the Help files provided.   The only downside is  putting up with the nag screens.
