Access VBA Adding items to ListBox issue


In my Access VBA code I use the following line to add a row to a ListBox

Id the variable oDescription has a colon or semi-colon in it this causes problems
How do I get around this?

"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.


pls try
Chr(34) & oDescription & ";" & oUnits & Chr(34)

You could wrap it in double-quotes to tell that this is one string:

Me.ListBox1.AddItem Chr(34) & oDescription & Chr(34) & ";" & oUnits
