Default View - List Box

I would like to know how to set default selection in a list box whenever a sheet is opened.

for e.g., my list box has following values - Alpha, Beta, Gamma. Whenever I open my sheet with this list box I want , 'Alpha' to be selected by default.

Is this possible ?

" Selection "--->Action- "Select in Field"--->Click Ok--->Field - Enter " Field Name " ---> Search String - Enter " Alpha "---> Ok--->Ok

On List box select " Alpha " ---> Right Click ----> Properties--->General Tab--->Enable " Always One Selected Value " ---> Ok

Whenever you open qv application by default it will make selection on " Alpha "
