Access ListView Box

Is there an Access Listview object I can use which works like the C# .NET one?

I would like the user to be able to drag columns, sort columns and perhaps right click to add/remove columns.

While the control is bound to a SQLQuery.

I also need multi-select.

I am currently using Access 2008, but could upgrade to Access 2010.

Thanks.

I would probably live with a standard datasheet view subform myself, but some developers use  Microsoft Listview Control version 6.0. which should be listed in your ActiveX controls.

There are also some 3rd party controls that do these things:

But as Peter said, you'd be much better off either using the standard Access datasheet view, or switching over to a more compliant development environment.

Just to add a bit, the reason for the comments above is that Access does not have complete support for the IDispatch interface and many non-native controls simply don't work with it correctly.

If you do go with a non-native control, make sure it says that it can be used with Access.

The user asked if there were any Listview controls similar to ones in .NET. The two answers below provided the answer (no, there is not) with workarounds:
