Choose multple records when using a drop-down-list on an Access form

I currently use a combo box where the user can select from a list and the selection is eneterd into the combo box. I then use this information for further processing. I would like to have the user select more than one choice from this list. Example: I have a location list as the drop-down and the user wants to run a report for both NY and NJ. I'd like the user to be able to hightlight both these choices and for me to capture this info so I can process the data for both locations.

I would suggest using a list instead then, it will allow you to select multiple values.

Yes, I tried that, but I'm not sure how the user selects more than one item.

Ok, I set it up with the "simple" multi select. I now need to look at list0 to determine exactly how it stores the multiple selections. I will be using a set variable routine:
i = GP_GetSetVariable("Set", 90, Me![List0])

Then I can look at gp_getsetvariable("get",90,null)

I'm not sure how the selection information is stored in a list box when Multi Simple is chosen. I can look at the data in a combo box, but nothing appears when I check the data in the list box.

I'm using a text box to display the information in the list box.
Text4 = List0
When I have Multi=No the form displays the choice from List0 in Text4 - It works

When I change the property to Multi=Yes Simple - Nothing displays in Text4

to display items selected form the listbox to Text4, separated by comma

private sub cmdBtn_click()
dim j, sLst
with me.list0
        If .ItemsSelected.Count > 0 Then
        for Each j In .ItemsSelected
            sLst = sLst & "," & .ItemData(j)
               
        next
        end if
end with
sLst = Mid(sLst, 2)
Me.text4 = sLst
