I have a listbox where the multi-select is set to extended, it work fine a few times, then when the user wants to make a selection it wants to select all records from the top of list to select item.  Does anyone know why this happens?

when I close the mdb then reopen it it still does this, when multi-select = simple that work great, however, I need the flexibility of the extended.

thanks,

K

Do a Compact and Repair - if the problem persists, try importing all you object to a new mdb.  That failing, delete and re-build the form.

You just may be able to get away with deleting the combobox, closing the mdb, re-open the mdb, open the form in design view and insert a new combobox.
