I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

This doesn't make sense.  The After Update event of a listbox fires when you select an item on the list.  Yet you want it to highlight the first item instead of the one you selected?  Can you explain this a bit more?

I am under the impression that you want to have the 1st item highlighted when you are ready to perform the after update event...if this is correct then you can use this code
Private Sub SelectAllButton_Click()
    For r = 0 To ListBox1.ListCount - 1
        ListBox1.Selected(r) = True
    Next r
End Sub

Open in new window

and get selected whatever items you want....e.g.
if r=0 then ListBox1.Selected(r) = True

Open in new window
