Access VBA get two values from ComboBox


I have a ComboBox as shown in the image below.
There is  Listbox below it.
I want to get the Part Number which is the first part of the ComboBox item and then the Description, which is the second
part of the item and add a new row to the ListBox where the Part Number goes into the first column and the Description goes into the second part of the List Box. What VBA code would I use?

The combo should be bound to a table rather than a value list.  It will be easier to manage.  To add a new row, you would add the data to the RowSource table and then requery the combo.

What is the bound column of the combo?  If it is Part, then Part will automatically be stored in the control if the control is bound.  You can reference other columns of the combo's RowSource by using its .Column property.  The columns are a zero based array so the first column is 0

Me.SomeControl = Me.cboPart.Column(0)

The second is 1

Me.SomeControlSecondColumn = Me.cboPart.Column(1)
