Dear Experts,

I have a multi select list box which updates a record with the ID of the items selected in the list box - this is bound to column 1 & works all fine (code below)

However I need the list box to update 2 different fields ...

[Tickers] to be updated with CategorySelect.BoundColumn = 1 (which is already in the code)

[TickersName] to be updated with CategorySelect.BoundColumn = 2

Can anybody help?

 
Private Sub CategorySelect_AfterUpdate()
Ticker = "24, "
CategorySelect.BoundColumn = 1
For Each Item In CategorySelect.ItemsSelected
    Ticker = Ticker + CategorySelect.ItemData(Item) + ", "
       
Next Item
End Sub

Give this a try:

Private Sub CategorySelect_AfterUpdate()
Ticker = "24, "
CategorySelect.BoundColumn = 1
For Each Item In CategorySelect.ItemsSelected
    Ticker = Ticker + CategorySelect.ItemData(Item) + ", "
    TickerName = CategorySelect.Column(1).ItemData(Item)      
Next Item
End Sub 

Open in new window

Please note that column indexes are zero based, so the first column is 0, second is 1, etc.  Adjust the code accordingly if needed.

Sorry - my syntax is off.

This should do it:

Private Sub CategorySelect_AfterUpdate()
Ticker = "24, "
CategorySelect.BoundColumn = 1
For Each Item In CategorySelect.ItemsSelected
    Ticker = Ticker + CategorySelect.ItemData(Item) + ", "
    TickerName = CategorySelect.Column(1,item) 
Next Item
End Sub 

Open in new window



Again, veriry that the zero-based column number is correct (I'm using 1, assuming were talking about the column that appears second).

To concatenate tham as you are doing with Ticker:

TickerName = TickerName + CategorySelect.Column(1,item) + ", "

Can you post your current code?

The syntax I have here http:#a36548151 worked for me (tested) with a multi-select listbox.

Me.ListboxName.Column(ColumnNumber,RowNumber)

(substituting Item for RowNumber)
