    Recordset displayed in Listbox

    At the moment I am retrieving certain records from an Access database and writing them to tables where an array of the table is created for display in a listbox for selection. Can these recordsets be displayed directly into the listbox.

    Typical retrieval code

    Hi again Nigel,

    It's not possible to test this fully without access to your workbook and database, but see if the following code gets you moving in the right direction:

    Hope this helps - as always, please let me know how you get on.

    Hope you're all staying Covid-Safe down there in the deep south!

    Hi Nigel,

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that you need to include a Reference to Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects n.n Library (Tools >> References >> select from list)

    Having looked at the database and workbook you sent me, I was able to get the following routine to work correctly:

    Strange year indeed! I managed to get my second jab last Sunday - life should start returning to normal next week.

    As always, please keep me posted re my suggested approach.

    Best regards,

    Re: Recordset displayed in Listbox

    Greg, many thanks, perfect. I will endeavour to adapt for remaining screens over next few days.

    Ultimately I will aim to have application as an addin controlled by a ribbon menu so I am trying to minimise interaction with worksheets.

    Roll on normality ...badly missed

    I'll leave thread open for a while in case I have any problem adapting.

    Regards

    Re: Recordset displayed in Listbox

    You don't actually need to transpose the data - you can just use the Column property instead of List:

    for example.

    Re: Recordset displayed in Listbox

    @ Greg and Rory

    I am motoring through changing the code to remove the data writing to tables and all good so far.

    This has been 30 years in the making... Access just daunted me but I can comprehend quizzing the database through VBA

    Many thanks for your help
