List Box to Populate Form

I have a form (frmDispatched), and a query (qrySchedules).

I would like to have a listbox on the frmDispatched that has the schedules information in it that would allow the user to click on any given schedule and have that information populate into the frmdispatched(table).

From there the user would continue and data enter all other information required for the dispatch.

Dont think I am googling the question correctly as I am not having the best of luck finding a solution to this and I am sure it isnt that difficult.

I have a database with one major form that has a few subforms and a listbox, and on the form there are buttons that link to other forms as well.

Bounded list box query on continuous form shows repeated data for all list boxes
I am still getting my feet wet in access. I have a continuous form where the user selects values from several bounded combo boxes to update information in Table A consisting of 27 existing records.

The row source for the combo boxes are Table 1. The resulting values in the combo box are bounded to Table A to populate the fields. An additional field is populated into a bounded list box through a table query on Table 1 using the combo box values.

The resulting list box value should populates the list box for 27 records when it should only be modifying one.

Is there anyway I can limit the update to one list box and prevent the 27 list boxes from being updated when the contents of the combo boxes are modified?

Enable users to find a record by selecting a value from a list
When you design a form in Access, you can create a list box (list box: A control that provides a list of choices. A list box consists of a list and an optional label.) or a combo box (combo box: A control used on a form that provides the combined functionality of a list box and a text box. You can type a value in a combo box, or you can click the control to display a list and then select an item from that list.) that can be used to find a record when a value is selected from the list. This makes it easier for users to quickly find existing records without having to type a value into the Find dialog box.
