Getting the row number in an Access listbox

Hi All -

I have an unbound listbox and I nered a way to identify the row number that the user just selected.

I then want to take that number and advance the cursor to the next row when a button is pushed and make the Listbox highlight the next item and then fetch the underlying data.

To get the selected item use the .ItemsSelected propery. See: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa196172%28office.11%29.aspx

Also check out the ItemData Property at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa196159%28office.11%29.aspx


To select an item use:

if X = current selected item then use this to select the next row

If X < Me.ListBox.ListCount 
   Me.ListBox.Selected(X + 1) = True
End If
