I want the user to be able to drag an item out of listbox A, bound to a table,  into unbound listbox B  OR unbound listbox C.  Seems like it should be simple, but I've been messing with it for hours with MouseDown, MoseMove events, but while mouse button is held down to drag, listbox A does not seem to lose focus.  Has anyone does this?

Peter's Drag N Dropper is going to be the closest thing to doing this - the sample db does have a List box example - and I've used this several times:

And ... re: "Seems this s/b simple .." ... well, not really.

No points please -

There is no native drag-drop capability with Access controls. You can drag-drop some things  into an Access form or control, but moving items between two Access controls like that is just as mx said - you can't do it.

I too use Peter's DnD, and it works pretty nicely.
