I have data combo box
let say table persone  wich has 2 field code and name
in my program i have combo box that shows the name
when a person select the name it stores the code in database.

Is there a way with datacombo to select more than one value.
I want to be able to select 2 or 3 persones and store their code in database
Did any of you guys encounter this before???

The data combo only allows single selections. However, using the normal list control with the multi-select property set to True will allow mutliple selections.

The data list doesn't support multiple selections because it is designed to be bound to a single field (the bound column).

I hope that helps. Incidently, using the onClick and onSelectionChange events you can effectively create the same sort of illusion as data binding (obviously via use of a recordset object) - use the itemData value to store the data you want to bind.

I hope that helps somewhat...

Cheers,

Oh, code:
'init listbox
private sub initListBox
 list1.multiselect = true
 with rs 'recordset
  do while not .eof
    list1.additem !itemNameField
    list1.itemData(list1.newIndex) = !itemDataToBind
    .moveNext
  loop
 end with
end sub

'Event
Private Sub List1_Click()
  dim i as integer
  for i = 0 to list1.listcount -1
   if list1.selected(i) then
     'appropriate code to say this is
     'selected
   end if
  next i
End Sub
