A simplified code :
Dim ListItem as Variant
Dim intCount as Integer
 For intCount = ListBoxSOURCE.ListCount - 1 To 1 Step -1
    ListItem = ListBoxSOURCE.ItemData(intCount )
   ListBoxDestination.AddItem ListItem
Next

Open in new window

In this regard, listboxes work the same way that combos work.  In the dependent listbox's RowSource include selection criteria that references the controlling listbox.

Select ... From ... Where thePK = Forms!myform!lstMajor

Then in the AfterUpdate event of lstMajor, requery the dependent listbox

me.lstDependent.Requery

Or, if you prefer, you can use any other "cascading combos" solution.

Actually depends if you need to have more then one value selected, if yes then set the list box multi select property to either simple or extended and use John's suggestion otherwise set muti select to none and use it the way Pat has suggested.
