Using Multiple Toggle Buttons to Select Multiple Listbox Items

P: n/a
Hi - Has anyone ever used toggle buttons to select items in a
listbox? I'd like to put about 24 toggle buttons on an unbound form
that select or deselect items in a multiple select listbox. I've come
across a way to set the listbox value to only 1 at a time, but need
multiple toggle buttons to be on their corresponding listbox item
values to be selected. Thanks!

Why not add a field named "Selected" (Yes/No) to your table and then create
a continuous form that includes Selected based on your table. You can then
quickly go down the records and check Selected for the records you want to
select. Just remember to update Selected to False when you close the form.

You know if you use the report wizard and select the query you want to use
as the source, the wizard displays a form with 2 list boxes where you can
move the fields from one box to the other. Is this a better approach?
