    Msg = ""
    With Me.ListBox1
        For h = 0 To .ListCount - 1
            If h > 1 Then
              MsgBox "Multiple Items Selected", vbCritical, "Item Selection"

You have to loop:
Dim n As Long, Counter as Long

With Me.Listbox1

For n = 0 To .ListCount - 1

   If .Selected(n) Then Counter = Counter + 1
Next n
msgbox Counter
End With
