Populating a multi-column listbox from another list box

I have two list boxes in an Excel User Form.  I want the user to select an item from ListBox1 and copy the data to ListBox2.

ListBox1 and ListBox2 have identical number of columns, 2 and one bound column.

When I had only one column of data, the command button to move the selected item from ListBox1 to ListBox2 worked:

Private Sub CommandButton3_Click()
    Dim i As Integer
   
    For i = 0 To ListBox1.ListCount - 1
        If ListBox1.Selected(i) = True Then ListBox2.AddItem ListBox1.List(i)
    Next i
   
End Sub

What do I need to change in the above VBA to move both columns?

Thank you

Glen

Hi,

pls try

    For i = 0 To ListBox1.ListCount - 1
         If ListBox1.Selected(i) = True Then 
              ListBox2.AddItem ListBox1.List(i, 0)
              ListBox2.List(ListBox2.ListCount - 1, 1) = ListBox1.List(i, 1)
         End If
     Next i

Rgonzo1971's code should work just fine. What line of code causes the error?

Do you know how to use Debug? If you don't, or even if you do, you may want to look at this article of mine.

I figured out that the overflow error is due to the ListBox table I am using.  It gets its information from a MS-Query that creates a table.

When I copy the column data to another sheet and use that data in my listbox, I do not get the overflow error.

Any thoughts on how I can correct the data in the Query Table so it does not cause the overflow error?

Can you show the code that you execute when you use the "ListBox table"? And in that code indicate the line that causes the problem?

I suspect your Integer is the problem - try using Long instead.

Not for points, but I'd suggest a more generic approach rather than specifying the number of columns:

Private Sub CommandButton3_Click()
    Dim i                     As Long
    Dim j                     As Long

    ListBox2.ColumnCount = ListBox1.ColumnCount
    For i = 0 To ListBox1.ListCount - 1
        If ListBox1.Selected(i) Then
            With ListBox2
                .AddItem
                For j = 0 To .ColumnCount - 1
                    .List(.ListCount - 1, j) = ListBox1.List(i, j)
                Next j
            End With
        End If
    Next i

End Sub
