TableAdapter parameter with multiple values

I have a TableAdapter Query for which I would like to pass a parameter with multiple values.

The underlying query uses a " .... WHERE A in (@Values)......" type command.

Field "A" is of type int

I've changed the parameter type of the parameter to string to allow me to pass a value like "1,2,3"

However, when I execute the query, I get a "Conversion failed when converting the varchar value '1,2,3' to data type int" error.

ANY help / advice would be appreciated, even if I have to use other objects instead of the genereated TableAdapters.
