Using Access and VBA:
I am working on a new project and have created a UI that needs to facilitate the user selecting from the Available list of Investors and moving the six columns of strdata that each row contains to the Selected list. If they make a mistake, they need to be able to move the row or rows of six columns back to the Available List.
My attempt at this came close, but no cigar.
I have attached detailed information file.

ajslentz,

Posting a Word Doc without any explanation does not help us understand what you may have done wrong.
It would be better if you posted a sample of your database.

In any event, ...

See this links for how to move Items from one listbox to another.

Thanks, but I had already looked at that link as well as dozens of others before posting this. I can't seem to find a good example that moves six columns back and forth. Could you not open the word doc? There is a full explanation and my code in it.

I have attached a cutdown version of the database to aid in the solution.

ajslentz,

Try this.

You must study it carefully and adapt it to work in your database.

Would it be possible for you to zip the db so I could download a zip file instead of an .mdb file?   I am unable to open your mdb file due to the network security here. I believe this might work in getting by the security.

Thanks for that great solution.
I came up with another way to get it done, and it works great, but it's about four times more code than what you used. My colleges and I are truly amazed at what little bit of coding you had to use.

Great Job - Thanks

ajslentz,

My code could have easily been double the size.
Fortunately the code to move the records on way, was the same for the other way.
So all I had to do is write the code once and swap out all the "Directional" variables.

So is my post acceptable, or do you still need my help?

Your solution is very acceptable! I will be replacing my code with it.
I believe that will do it for now.

Again, Thanks for a great job on this.
