MORE INFORMATION


Steps to Reproduce Behavior


  1. Open the sample database NWIND.MDB.
  2. Open the Employees form in Design view.
  3. Add a list box with the following properties to the form:

          Object: list box
          --------------------------
          ControlName: List Box Test
          ControlSource: Employee ID
          RowSourceType: Table/Query
          RowSource: Employees
          Left: 2.99 in
          Top: 0.67 in
  4. Position the new list box on top of the First Name control.
  5. View the form in Form view.
  6. Move among the records in the form. At first, the list box displays the correct information, but as you move among the records the information in the underlying control begins to appear in the list box, making the information appear garbled.
