    I have a list box based on a query to display its values. When the user
    opens the form, the list box requery's to get the values for the default
    record on opening. Also on the form is a subform based on the users
    selection in the list box. Is there any way that when the form is opened, i
    can default the list box to have the first item in the list selected, so that
    the subform displays this data for the first item in the list box, without
    the user having to select it?

    Set the Default Value property of the list box to:
    =[MyListbox].[ItemData](0)

    This assumes these properties for the list box:
    Name MyListbox
    Column Headings No
    Multi Select No
