Note that you will have to adjust your code to trim the SQL string to your specific length, ...so do this before the "Trim" line of code:
    msgbox strSQL
...Or create a textbox to display strSQL, then do this:
me.txtSQL=strSQL
...or do this so you can see strSQL in the immediate window in the VBA Editor
    debug.print strSQL

You can also use the "IN()" SQL keyword to shorten the SQL

Also note here that it is much easier to pass the listbox selections to a Form or Report as the recordsource.

This way you can control what the user can and cannot do with the results:
