I have a multiple column list box. I need to iterate through each row and read the column values
What is the syntax?

For example:

Dim intCtr as integer
Dim strCol0Value as string
Dim strCol1Value as string

For intCtr=0 To listbox.Listcount -1
  strCol0Value =  MyValuelistbox (??)
  strCol1Value  MyValuelistbox (??)

Next intCtr

Or can I declare listbox items ?

For each item in listbox
   strCol0Value=??
   strCol0Value=??
Next item

thanks

Dovberman,

Why not just iterate through the Listbox's source Table (or Query)?

What exactly are you trying to accomplish here?

The source is a value list. There are 2 list boxes. One contains all available choices. The other contains the choices that were selected from list 1.

I need to update a table based on the items in list 2.

I found code for parsing and finding selected rows. Since all rows need to be read, I can remove the selected criteria.

  For intCtr = 0 To lstApplicants.ListCount - 1
        'isSelected = lstApplicants.Selected(intCtr)
        'If isSelected Then
             lstApplicants.ItemData (intCtr) ' returns the data from column 0
            'Do Stuff
        End If
     Next

Dovberman,

If this is a multi-select listbox, you can use code like this to "de-select all the selected rows:

Dim varItem As Variant
Dim ctl As Control

Set ctl = Me.lstCustomers

    'Loops through all the Items and turns them off
    For Each varItem In ctl.ItemsSelected
        ctl.Selected(varItem) = False
    Next varItem

You will have to modify the object names to match yours.
