Thank you for your reply, but I did that...the option to change the color of the list box is not listed in the properties. 3D shading is NOT what I need. I want to change the background (behind the text) from white to a different color from the color palette. Any ideas?
Ahhh, okay. I see where the discrepancy is coming into play. You are refering to the list box from the VBToolbox, right? I am using the one from the Forms toolbar and it does not list the same properties options. Much more limited, it appears. I will see if I can change my form to use the toolbox version, unless you know how to change the properties of the other one.
I usually stay away from the FORMS and just use the CONTROL TOOLBOX. I really don't know what purpose the FORMS controls serve versus the CONTROL TOOLBOX controls. I find that the CONTROL TOOLBOX controls are much easier to work with.
phantom, thank you for all of your input. I was able to change the control to the Toolbox version with no problem. Many moons ago I was shown the Forms controls and never gave the others a second thought. I guess I will from now on...they are much more versatile. Thank you again!
