Diving Horizontal Lines are not possible in a Listbox.

You need to look at another control (grid, datasheet, etc.)

Yes, Lists boxes were designed to make Viewing and selecting (especially non-contiguous ranges) easier.

"Formatting" was never their strong point.
;-)
(Hence the many question here about formatting the listbox values for currency, ...etc)

The datasheet subform is great if you will only be selecting one value or a contiguous range of values.

But if you need a non-contiguous section, a listbox is the way to go.(IMO)

Not having horizontal dividing lines is a small price to pay for the ease of selection.

(It would be nice if Access would give us "Alternate row shading" here like they do in datasheets though...)

BTW, the mysterious "Gridline" Top and bottom properties don't create horizontal lines, as then names seem to be indicating?
Who knows...
