ASP.Net 2.0 VB Listbox / Store Values in Session Variable

drees727 asked
Last Modified: 2011-10-03
I have a multiple selection listbox on my form.  I'd like to store the selected values in a session variable and use the session variable in my sql statement.  Something like:

Session("Name") = request("ListBoxName")

Dim sName as String
sName = Session("Name")

SQL = Select Name from Table1 where [Name] like '%" & SName & "%'"

What I need to end up with is something like:

[Name] like %Sue Smith% OR %Steve Jones%

I'm looking for an example on how to do this.  I'm using ASP.Net 2.0 VB.  Thanks for your help.
