I have a form with  a list box with 3 columns
1 ID
2 bookid
3 title
The form control source is catalog
The list box control source is query from another table called library.
When user selects bookid (column2)
I want to write column 2 value to field book to table catalog.
I have my list box as 3 column count and bound column 2 .

Thanks

I think you can just set the control source of your listbox to your "book" field.

sorry I missed type the data is from a query the control source is the book field.
the problem is it writes from the id  column  instead of column 2. ( it writes the id instead of the bookid)

Well, if you have the listbox control source set to your book field, and your bound column is the bookid column, it should work fine. I would just make sure you have your columns in the order you think they are, and you are binding to the correct column.

yes I have it set correctly but it still writes the ID value in the book field.

Could you possibly attach the database or a sample of it so I can take a look?
