Not sure if this is do-able.

I have a listbox on my form that is populating correctly
I have a click event on the ListBox and am getting the value of column  (1)


Private Sub lbvHoursSID_Click()
    varHours = Me.lbvHoursSID.Column(1)
    Me.lblMessage.Caption = varHours
    blah...blah...blah...

Is there any way to set the value of column(5) on a different textbox update event?

Something like...
    Me.lbvHoursSID.Column(5) = Me.txtHours

first you have to set in the list box property
Column Count 5  ' the least number of columns you can have could be more

now you can use this
Me.txtHours = Me.lbvHoursSID.Column(5)


you can also specify the Column Widths

Not directly like that.

To change a column value, you'd have to change the rowsource query, or change the value in the table that the rowsource is drawn from.

What is your overall goal for this idea?  Can you use a separate control to show this value instead of changing the column?

Here's my goal.
I have a listbox that loads the type of hours based on customer.

I can't have a jillion hours data entry boxes all over the form.

So...I want to click on the hours type description (unique per customer) and then enter the hours in a single text box.
When I tab off of that textbox, I want to store the value BACK in the hours column in the listBox.

You can see my controls below...
I'ts looking like I may have to feed these various values BACK into my recordset?
The other columns aren't visible.  The column I'm trying to set is the (5)

This is the SUB that sets the record set
Private Sub loadSID()
    Dim cmd As New ADODB.Command
    cmd.ActiveConnection = Conn
    cmd.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
    cmd.CommandText = "usp_HoursTrackingSIDGet"
    Set Me.lbvHoursSID.Recordset = cmd.Execute()
End Sub

Open in new window


This is my screen print

Okay...

Its not clear how you are storing the data for the listbox, but I think the code behind the textbox (Exit Event perhaps) would be something along these lines:

Dim strSQL as string

' Update your table
strSQL = "UPDATE YourListBoxTable SET Hours = " & me.txtHoursReg & " WHERE Definition = 'Hours - Regular' AND PersonID = " & Me.PersonID
CurrentDB.execute strSQL, dbFailOnError + dbSeeChanges

'Re-load the listbox
LoadSID

This has to stay client side.
There may be dozens of people updating hundreds of  records for the same customer at the same time.

On the client side is there no way of making provate recordset variable and updating the record for a particular row and then rebinding the listbox to THAT recordset?

In .Net this isn't an issue...I'd just cache everything and feed it back into the dataset/datatable.

But these folks are still in MS Access and I have to deal with this.

Okay try this from the exit or lost focus event of  your text box:

dim rs as DAO.recordset
set rs = Me.lbvHoursSID.Recordset
rs.FindFirst "Definition = 'Hours - Regular'"
rs.Edit
rs!Hours = me.txtHoursReg
rs.update
Me.lbvHoursSID.Requery

That didn;t work but after moving things around...I'm looping through (to see if I can)

The code is failing on the rst.Fields("Hours").Value = 30 line.

lrbrister,
<This has to stay client side.>


if i am reading it correctly, you don't need to update the "TABLE" used as the rowsource of your listbox?

but, you need to see changes in the RowSource of your listbox,  is that correct?


if that is the case, you may need to use disconnected recordsets
