Multi Listbox search with Results in Subform

Hi Experts!

I have attached a sample database that I picked up from the web. It contains a Listbox form that concatenates the selection into a string for the query, which is executed upon clicking the command button.

What I would like to happen is to open the query in the Subform I have added to the Form. I then need to be able to insert a few column totals in the form. So basically, when a user makes their selection from the Listbox, they click the command button, and the query in the subform then updates.

When I've managed to get this working, I need to add more a couple more listboxes, which will need to be cascade sensitive (i.e. dynamically filtered based on the other listbox selections).

Hope I'm making sense!

Thanks in advance,
