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)
                        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
