Getting the Value Associated with checked item in a check list box control

I load a check list box with items that have a value with the following code.

Clbx_Elevators.Items.Add(New StringWithValue With {.Text = rec.Fields("Carnumber").Value, .Value = rec.Fields("ElevatorID").Value})

The user can check one or more items

When I need to retrieve the Values associated with each item, I loop through the items, find which one is checked and grab the value using selecteditem.value.  There is no  problem the first time through.  However, when I find another item checked and try to retrieve the "selecteditem.value"  it still gives me the value of the first selected item.  How do I select the next item that is checked so that I can get its value?

Here is my code.

 For I = 0 To (Clbx_Elevators.Items.Count - 1)
            If Clbx_Elevators.GetItemChecked(I) = True Then
                With rec
                    .AddNew()
                    .Fields("jobid").Value = NJID
                    .Fields("ElevatorID").Value = Clbx_Elevators.SelectedItem.value
                    .Update()
                End With
            End If
        Next

Thanks

Hi BROOKLYN1950;

Is that Brooklyn NY?

Sorry according to Microsoft documentation that CheckedListBox does not support multiple check boxes being checked.

Microsoft Dicumentation
The SelectionMode property determines whether one item in the list box can be selected or no items can be selected. For CheckedListBox objects, multiple selection is not supported. You can set the mode to one item or no items.
