I am using a startup form as my primary information display for a 2200
record database. The form contains a listbox which displays the four
fields of information for each record. The first column is the bound
column. This allows me to incorporate a number of control buttons on the
form that allow the user to switch form views when one particular record
in the listbox is selected. Therefore, if the user selects one of 2200
records in the listbox, then selects the "Patient Info" control button,
the patient information form for the particular record highlighted in the
My problem is that the listbox is not an ideal view of the information.
Unlike a subform, I can not sort or filter with the listbox. If I remove
the listbox and incorporate the subform, I can not use the control buttons
that I have included onto the form for opening other forms.
