    How to retain values selected in a listbox

    I have a form with a table and 2 list boxes.



    The table is a child to the 2 tables the listboxes pertain to.

    Selecting a value in the listboxes populates the selected fields in the table on the form.

    It all works as expected EXCEPT

    After the record is added to the table and the next blank one comes up, the values in the listboxes are no longer selected. I need to reuse the selected values on multiple records.

    Is there a way Access can accommodate this?

    Thanks

    Check out the "Duplicate" function on frmInventory in the database I attached. It will duplicate whatever row you select in the form but will not save until you change the data in the Primary Key.
    Hope that helps.
