This will give you the list count of the List box:


I don't think you can directly get the count of a specific column ... say a True/False column ... and count the number of True's.

What are you trying to do here?  Count the number of items?  Get a total?  Count instances?

You could try this.
Dim MyTotal as Currency ' if you are totaling currency values'
For i =  0 to Me.ListRecurringPayments.ListCount - 1
 MyTotal = MyTotal + Me.ListRecurringPayments.Column(6, i)
Next i
 Me.MyTextBox = MyTotal

Put the code behind the on change event for the list box so that it will update your total if the list changes.
