Folks

How do I display multiple columns in a listbox, my below code works but would be well suited with another column to display


strSQL = "SELECT * FROM TABLEA WHERE S_TYPE  ='OUTDOOR'"
   
    MsgBox (strSQL)
   
    Set oRsOracle = oConOracle.Execute(strSQL)
 
  Do Until oRsOracle.EOF
    ListBox1.AddItem oRsOracle.Fields(3).Value
        oRsOracle.MoveNext
  Loop
 
  oRsOracle.Close


all help will do

You can build a string that is something like

ListBoxText = oRsOracle.Fields(3).Value & " - " & oRsOracle.Fields(4).Value

Then add that to the list box

ListBox1.AddItem ListBoxText

You can then have a play with adding CHR(9) (tab) to try and tabulate the text

the concept seems ok but I am using a loop like so

 Do Until oRsOracle.EOF
    ListBox1.AddItem oRsOracle.Fields(4).Value
     oRsOracle.MoveNext
  Loop

seems when I use your suggestion it only shows the values from the first record in the list but repeated continuously

i.e.

car-ford
car-ford
car-ford
car-ford

any ideas?

Where did you put the code that I posted, it should replace this line in your code

   ListBox1.AddItem oRsOracle.Fields(4).Value

so you get

 Do Until oRsOracle.EOF
    ListBoxText = oRsOracle.Fields(3).Value & " - " & oRsOracle.Fields(4).Value
    ListBox1.AddItem ListBoxText

    oRsOracle.MoveNext
  Loop
