I am using the following code to fill a listbox in Access but the columns are not wide enough. How do I widen the columns to automatically fit the data

Private Sub Report_Open()

    Dim Query As DAO.QueryDef

    Debug.Print oReportSQL
    If oReportSQL <> "" Then
        Set Query = CurrentDb.CreateQueryDef("", oReportSQL)
        Me!ListSql.ColumnCount = Query.Fields.Count
        Me!ListSql.RowSource = oReportSQL
    End If

End Sub
