I'm trying to write values from a listbox to an unbound table.

My code isn't working.

Here it is:

    Dim RS As DAO.Recordset
        Set RS = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("tblReady")
            RS.AddNew
            RS!Bay = Forms!frmPlanted.ListBayQty.Bay
            RS!ReadyQty = Forms!frmPlanted.ListBayQty.ReadyQty
            RS.Update

????

You refer to columns in a listbox by their index (which is zero-based):

Dim RS As DAO.Recordset
        Set RS = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("tblReady")
            RS.AddNew
            RS!Bay = Forms!frmPlanted.ListBayQty.Column(0)
            RS!ReadyQty = Forms!frmPlanted.ListBayQty.Column(1)
            RS.Update

If the code is running on frmPlanted:

            RS.AddNew
            RS!Bay = Me.ListBayQty.Column(0)
            RS!ReadyQty = Me.ListBayQty.Column(1)
            RS.Update

Obviously you'd have to change the Column(x) values to match those in your listbox.

Try this
   Dim RS As DAO.Recordset
        Set RS = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("tblReady")
            with RS
                 .AddNew
                 !Bay = Forms!frmPlanted.ListBayQty.Bay
                 !ReadyQty = Forms!frmPlanted.ListBayQty.ReadyQty
                 .Update
            end witn
      RS.Close

set RS= Nothing

What is he need for this?

I mean, ...there is a way to do this as you ask, ...

But if you state your ultimate goal, we may be able to provide a more efficient method...

For example, it should be far easier to insert the listbox "source" to a table.

But again, if the listbox source is already a table/query, ...what is the need to export it to another table?
