Re: Delete selected item from listbox (access 97)
How did you populate the listbox in the first place? Is it based on a table, a query, a callback, a values list, a field list or what?
You can do things with listboxes in Access that VB programmers can only dream of, but if you want a RemoveItem equivalent, you're going to have to program it. You can't get a definitive answer until we know exactly what you're trying to do.
One benefit of lists in Access over VB is that you have a built in SelectedItems collection when you turn on the Multiselect property of the listbox. That means you don't *have* to remove anything from the list, you can simply deal with the items selected instead. Another is that the secondary array is populated automatically, so you can use ItemData without having to explicitly create it in code.Charlotte
