Hi All, I have a searchbox with comman button to search data in a listbox, the code below for the search and locating the records. The search works great but the record selected is usually not showing in the listbox. I always have to scroll one record down in the listbox.

I tried to change the height of the listbox but it is still not working. the search finds the right record but if the listbox showing 10 records, it is always the one above the first one from 1-10.

I am not sure if there is an easier or better way to do this.....

Dim strSearch As String
Dim RowIndex As Long
Dim numrows As Long
numrows = CInt((List96.Height) / 67)

strSearch = "*" & txtsearch.Value & "*"

With Me.List96
    If .ListCount > 0 Then
        For RowIndex = 0 To .ListCount - 1
            If .Column(0, RowIndex) Like strSearch Or .Column(1, RowIndex) Like strSearch Or .Column(2, RowIndex) Like strSearch Then
                .SetFocus '
               
                    If ((RowIndex + (numrows - 1)) <= List96.ListCount) Then
                        Me.List96.ListIndex = RowIndex + (numrows - 1)
                    Else
                        Me.List96.ListIndex = RowIndex
                    End If
                   
                        Me.List96.ListIndex = RowIndex
                       
                    If MsgBox("Do you want to continue searching?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Searching...") = vbNo Then
                        Exit For
                    End If
            End If
        Next RowIndex
    End If
End With

I usually filter down the list box records like this (filtering out records that dont meet the criteria):


strSQL = "SELECT ... FROM YourTable WHERE YourField LIKE "
strSearch = "*" & txtsearch.Value & "*"
Me.ListBox.RowSource = strSQL & strSearch


Try out the sample database in my article here:

I see, the reason I am using it this way, because I may select more than one choice, i double click on the record in the list box, then it append to another table as selection

This would still allow you to do that... youd just need to enter new search criteria in the txtSearch box.  If you clear the text box you will see all records again.

I tried your code and it seems to work fine in Access 2007.  I just cleaned it up a bit here:
Private Sub btnChangeDefaultMarkup_Click()
    Dim strSearch As String
    Dim RowIndex As Long

    strSearch = "*" & txtSearch.Value & "*"
    
    With Me.List96
        If .ListCount > 0 Then
            For RowIndex = 0 To .ListCount - 1
                If .Column(0, RowIndex) Like strSearch Or .Column(1, RowIndex) Like strSearch Or .Column(2, RowIndex) Like strSearch Then
                    .SetFocus
                    Me.List96.ListIndex = RowIndex
                            
                    If MsgBox("Do you want to continue searching?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Searching...") = vbNo Then
                        Exit For
                    End If
                End If
            Next RowIndex
        End If
    End With
End Sub
