Folks

I have listbox with values, if I click on the selected value I get a message showing the depicted list box item from the list  i.e. like so:


Private Sub ListBox1_Click()
MsgBox "Selected Value is " & ListBox1.Value & ""


1) how do I get the select value to display in an excek worksheet i.e. on sheet 1 field b1?
2) how do I get a listbox1.value to display and parse in SQL statement on a DB connection i.e.:

 strSQL = "SELECT * FROM MYTABLE WHERE PARAMETER = ListBox1.Value  ?

would be glad for your assistance

cheers

Since the correct value is appearing, you should be able to do this to add it to Excel:

Sheets(1).range("B1").value = ListBox1.Value

Open in new window


And to add it to SQL:

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM MYTABLE WHERE PARAMETER = " & ListBox1.Value

Open in new window


(This if PARAMETER is numeric)
or

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM MYTABLE WHERE PARAMETER = '" & ListBox1.Value & "'"

Open in new window

(This if your PARAMETER is a string rather than a number.)

For dates you want to use "#" as delimiters, I think:

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM MYTABLE WHERE PARAMETER = #" & ListBox1.Value & "#"

Open in new window
