Listbox Scroll Bar



I'm working with AC2003. I have a listbox on a form that gets populated via
a query. It loads it find. However, when there are more entries than can be
displayed, it automatically displays the vertical scroll bar, which I would
expect. However, when I click on the scroll bar to scroll down to see the
hidden entries, it highlights the first entry in the listbox and does not
scroll down. The listbox is enabled and locked. I want users to see but not
select the entries, all of the entries therefore the need for the vertical
scroll bar. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance for your help!
