How to set ListBox as Read Only in Access 2000

I am trying to figure out how to make a ListBox's rowsource recordset be Read Only.
I am assumming it is not by default. When opening a recordset using Set RS= "sql string, etc, etc", I know I can specify a dbOpenSnapshot option, but can't figure out how to accomplish this in a SQL statement within Access.

This is an example of how I am defining the row source for the list box:
SqlString="Select * from tblCustomers"
ListBox.Rowsource=" SqlString

I don't want a lock on that table when filling the list box.

Thanks.

Can I ask why you need to do this?  By definition, the Row Source of a List box is 'read only' ... in the context of using this SQL in a list box, ie, no data can be changed when connected to a list box.

I am getting record locks when users are accessing this data, and I am trying to make sure this is not the culprit. I was not able to determine if list boxes were read only or if the recordset that opens were read/write (although I saw no reason why they would be, but could not verify this). If they are read only, then I have no issue at this point as the list box must not be the problem.
