I have a simple query that I use to populate a listbox with transactions, selecting the required account by preloading a property.  It will select one account but not the other.

I have attached a small simple test database to demonstrate the problem.

This is driving me mad and I would greatly appreciate any help I can get.

Thanks in advance,

Clive

Thanks, Joe.

Can you suggest any way of discovering what the leading characters are?  Standard Access things I've tried, don't throw any light.

Well ... not sure that is the problem.  Notice the combo  box account selected above is not in Import table.  So that is the actual problem

The spaces are WEIRD.  In the Immediate Window, Trim removes the Spaces ... so they must be spaces.
Not sure what is going on

Two out of three of the numbers in the combo are not in the Import table.
So ... it's actually working correctly ...

This works ... when all combo values are in the Import Table.

Thanks, Joe.

I changed the query on the account field to read the accounts table, and one of the account numbers was corrupted.  Fixed that and now all is good.
