    I don't think so, however, take a look at the *first* screen shot in the
    following

    http://www.members.shaw.ca/AlbertKallal/Articles/Grid.htm

    note how on the right side I used a continues form...and, really..it looks
    not a lot different then the listbox on the left side...

    So, look at the above...might be able to use a continues form....

    Well, to save you reading the article.....

    The article says that I did NOT use a listbox, but instead, I used a
    continues sub form.
    (so, the answer is use a continues sub form...not a listbox).

    So, you can use a continuous form, and that gives you this effect. The added
    bonus (again from the article) is that you can show check boxes, and even
    place buttons on the continues form. And, further, the data displayed is
    actually editable in side of that grid...

    This choice really comes down to what you need, and how you need to use the
    listbox. Replacing a listbox with a continues form might not work for you,
    especially if your listbox is bound to a particular field.

    So, my suggestion is just that, and likely only one that will work if you if
    the listbox is used for selection, simply display/editing of data like the
    example....

    However, you can't bind a continues form to a particular field for
    example...

    Anyway, the right side is not a listbox...but a continues sub-form. Take a
    browse of the other screens in that link...there is some ideas and
    examples...

    So, this is just a possible suggestion or idea...

    Use the wizard to create a few continues forms. If you need a sample/example
    of continuous form, download my multi-select example here:
