Access 2003 does not store the selections of a multi-select list box.
To store mult-selections you would have to write code to store multiple values and write further code to decode the stored values.

arnier13,

1. You might want to switch to "Extended" multiselect mode, becuase it works in the way most people expect from a Windows program.

2. When you select multiple values you can use a loop to "Accumulate" the values.
You can then use the values as multiple criterion in a query. (ex: WHERE Country='USA' OR Country='Spain')

OK,

But Peter57r also answered you question as well, but from a different perspective.

You original request was how to "Access" these values.
Therefore Pete's suggestion of writing code is a actually the more accurate answer to your original question as posed.

You should have really split the points.

Please click the "Request Attention" button in your original post, to have this changed.

Thanks!
