Databound Listbox - Item Selection Problem

I have a winform with a listbox databound to a single column (EmailName) of an Access table via a tableadapter. The listbox SelectionMode is set to MultiSimple and the ValueMember is set to "EmailName". The listbox fills correctly and I have coded (lboxEmailName.ClearSelected()) so no items are selected on form load .

The problem - When I select an item that is not the first item on the list, the first item changes to the item selected.

For example: There are three names in the listbox in the following order; Moe, Larry, Curly. If I select Larry, then first name on the list (Moe), changes to Larry. Also, I can't deselect the first name on the list as long as another name is selected.

I have no experience with listboxes, I just need to have a listbox that will allow the user to make a single or multiple selection from a short list of names.

Can someone help?

Do you mean you have two rows showing Larry ?

eg.
Larry
Larry
Curly

This almost sounds like it is updating (modifying) the underlying data source to the list box.
Do you have any code responding to events raised by the listbox ?

No events raised by the listbox. Once the form loads, no code runs until a button (btnSend) is clicked. The changes (Moe, Larry, Curly to Larry, Larry, Curly) due to user selection occurs before the button click.

Hmmm, I don't immediately see what is going wrong.

I found the problem, actually your "updating (modifying) the underlying data source" comment sent me to look at the Properties;(DataBindings);SelectedValue... I had that set to my tableadapter bindingsource AND the DataSource Property set to my tableadapter binding source along with the DisplayMember set to EmailName.

I cleared the Properties;(DataBindings);SelectedValue and left the DataSouce and DisplayMember as is and this seems to have cleared the conflict.

Too many late nights at the keyboard...

Thanks for you help!
