I have a form with a select box (list box) to select mutliple items. when the form is submitted all of the selected items are put into a database. I also have a page to edit the entries in that form so all the values are pulled out of the database and populate the fields with the correct values. the problem is that list box. the multiple selected items are put into the database (in one field - example: item1, item2, item3). the problem is on the edit page ... how do i pull all of those items out and have the list box automatically select each of those items? (automatically multiple select)? I am using classic asp with vb.
