Steve,

Are you really interested in the 2nd column of the listbox, or the one that is the bound column?  Listboxes are zero based, so by referring to column(1) you are actually looking at the 2nd column in the Listboxes RowSource.

is the field [PlantedBayID] a number or a string?  if it is a number, Capricorn1's example above should work.
