iSelected:=listBox.SelCount;

if (iSelected>0) then
   Query1.SQL.Add(' where ');

icount:=0;

while (iSelected>0) do
begin
   if (listBox.Selected[icount]) then
   begin
      Query1.SQL.Add(' city= '+ listBox.Items[icount]);
     
      iSelected:=iSelected-1;
     
      if (iSelected>0) then
         Query1.SQL.Add(' and ');
