"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The short answer is no.  But by setting the listbox font to one of the non-proportional fonts (Courier, Consolas, ...) and padding the column with spaces on the left, you can achieve this effect.  I frequently do it when I want to display numeric values in the list.

Select Right(Space(10) & Format([numberField], "#,###.00"), 10) as [PaddedNumber]
FROM yourTable

The key here is that if you want to use that column in your subsequent code, you need to make sure you Trim( ) off all of the spaces and then convert it back to a number, something like:

dblNumber = Val(Trim(me.lstTest.Column(0)))
