adding additional recordset to listbox

excel 2010 vba

I have listbox i'm populating from a recordset.

I would like to also add additional items to the listbox via another recordset.


Is this possible ?

do i just need to use the same code as below to add items from the other recordset and it will add without deleting the items i have already in the litsbox ?


         Arr = rst.GetRows
       rst.MoveFirst
i = 0

With frmResultAll.ListBox1
   .Clear
        .ColumnHeads = False
        .ColumnCount = rst.Fields.Count
        .Column = Arr
        .ListIndex = -1
End With

Open in new window



Thanks

Unless someone comes up with a better solution you can use a loop to add individual items of the second list using the command

frmResultAll.ListBox1.add individualitem

Hi,

If both recordsets are generated from SQL statements, & each has the same number of columns (fields), then you will be able to join the two statements (& hence, the two sets of results) with a UNION statement.

If both SQL statements do not have the same number of columns, then this can still be achieved, by adding "filler" columns to one of the statements so that the quantity of columns is identical in each individual statement.

For example,

If the first recordset is generated from the following statement:

SELECT [Name] FROM [Address_List]

and the second statement is:

SELECT [Surname], [FirstName] FROM [Contacts]


The two could be joined as follows:

SELECT [Name] FROM [Address_List]
UNION
SELECT [FirstName] & " " & [Surname] AS [Name] FROM [Contacts]

The resultset would then be a Union of both statements (both collections of [Name]).


You could order the resultset in ascending alphabetical order, if you wished, as follows:

SELECT * FROM
(
SELECT [Name] FROM [Address_List]
UNION
SELECT [FirstName] & " " & [Surname] AS [Name] FROM [Contacts]
)
ORDER BY
[Name] ASC


I won't go on now, but if you have two SQL statements we can look at combining them as described.

BFN,

fp.
