I have two list boxes and I have written a statement to insert the selected item into the database, that work for single items.  But I cannot get it to insert ALL selected items into the SQL database.  Below is my VB.NET code.  I am not getting an error and it is only inserting the first selected item.

 For i = 0 To ListBox1.Items.Count - 1
            If ListBox1.Items(i).Selected = True Then

                'Data to be inserted
                cmd.Parameters("@amenityid").Value = Me.ListBox1.SelectedValue
                cmd.Parameters("@locationid").Value = Me.Request.QueryString("LocationID")

                Dim ok As Integer = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery
                MsgBox("Conference Room successfully updated.")

            End If
            Next i

Instead of:
cmd.Parameters("@amenityid").Value = Me.ListBox1.SelectedValue

Open in new window

You need:
cmd.Parameters("@amenityid").Value = Me.ListBox1.Items(i).Value

Open in new window

Otherwise you are always retrieving the value of the first selected item.
