Hi,
Probably a very simple solution but it is driving me mad.
In asp.net 2.0 vb.net, I have a list box which allows the user to select mulitple selections.  These are stored in a database as comma separated values.

When I come to display the result again later, how do I get the multiple selections to be selected?

I extract the data from the database and pop it into an array then loop through that:
FOR
    lstBox.SelectedValue = x
Next

But this only puts the last selection of the loop in.

Thanks in anticipation
Andrew
