Greeings All;

I have a script that dynamically appends all highlighted items in a select box to a  textarea, See code below.

What I'd like to have happen is to have the highlighted items in the select box appended to 2 separate textarea boxes (and have just the item enclosed in quotations appear in the 1st textarea box).


Highlighted item: "7934,Ms 7934" <7934@something.com>,

Textarea1                  Textarea2
7934,Ms 7934           "7934,Ms 7934" <7934@something.com>,


function Copyall()
    var container = document.Pinebox
    var qube = container.dataadded

    var numofqubeions = qube.length
    var itemspicked = new Array

    var j = 0
    for (i=0; i<numofqubeions; i++)
      if (qube[i].selected === true)
        itemspicked[j] = qube[i].value

    itemspicked = itemspicked.join(" ")

    document.getElementById("MrSpock").innerHTML = itemspicked


<form method=POST name="Pinebox">

<select name="dataadded" id="dataadded" multiple onchange='Copyall()' rows="5" cols="45">
<option>"7934,Ms 7934" <7934@something.com>,</option>
<option>"7935,Ms 7935" <7935@somethingelse.com>,</option>
<option>"7936,Ms 7936" <7936@somethingelse.com>,</option>
<option>"7937,Ms 7937" <7937@somethinggood.com>,</option>
<option>"7938,Ms 7938" <7938@something.com>,</option>
</select><textarea name="MrSpock" id="MrSpock" rows="5" cols="45"></textarea>
