Is ther a way to enter a new record in a listbox rather than in a form tied to the listbox?

In other words, if I double-click on the blank area of a list box I want to be able to enter the data for the new record right in the listbox rather than have a form popup to enter the data into.

You can't enter data directly into a listbox like that.

The closest workaround I can think of would be to use a subform in continuous forms or datasheet view instead of a listbox.

With a "ComboBox" you kinda have a shot at this because of all the: "new data" and "edit List" properties.

But ultimately I am with mbizup, ...use a form in place of the listbox (as a subform)
