Hi All

Some advice and comments please.

I'm running a MySQL Database (5.1.55) with Base as the Front-End ( on PCLinuxOS (2012).

I have a Membership Database and have added a SubForm to show all the eMails sent and received from each Member.
The eMails are all in a separate Table.

On my Main "Membership" Form I have added a button to bring-up the eMail SubForm. (I have this part working!) But what I see as the best way to do the last step is to add a ListBox named "Find Member" to the SubForm and this will read from a Query holding the concatanated First Name and Surname of each Member and that Member's ID Key. Once these are inserted into the SubForm it will extract all the relative eMails, sort them into date order and display them.

So - Questions and Advice please on the following...

 * Is this the right way to approach this requirement?
 * Will the Query update automatically each time it is called so as to
   pick-up new eMails?
 * How do I make the ListBox 'read' the results of the Query?
 * How do I make these results automatically insert into their
   respective fields on the SubForm?
 * How do I make the SubForm do the sort as a final step? (Maybe a
   'Sort' Button??)

Any help, suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated!!

Pretoria RSA.
