Default select statement with listbox item(where qnsID ="

I was advised on this.

select * from ans_table, ss_table where ss_table.qnsID = " & List1.ItemData(List1.ListIndex)

i'm a bit skeptical on how SQL joins with VBA using =" & (is it really meant to work?)
excuse my inexperience so please do correct me.

I kinda need to compare a listbox item to a column in my table.
Need some serious help.

Thank You very much.

You should have an opening " mark as the one before the & is the end of the literal string and the & is joining the first part to the current value of the textbox item's itemdaa property. So, your whole select statement should look like this:

"select * from ans_table, ss_table where ss_table.qnsID = " & List1.ItemData(List1.ListIndex)

does this help?

Ya it is working . & is the Concatenation operator in Vb. The field /column is not numeric then prefix with single quotes (') like as ( query field = '"& listbox &"'"

ok
