my ErrorHi,

I am filtering my data.  
I have to filter by Segment, Industry and company.

the SelectedCompany has a value of "object Object], 279425"

but it should be like this:

SelectedCompany = "279425"

the option list is like this: "4,5010,279415"


function setGroupOptions()
	{
		var	SelectedSeg=""	
		var	SelectedIndustry=""	
		var	SelectedCompany=""	
		var dropdownGroup = $("#DispGroupList");
		var SelectedCompany = $("#DispCompanyList option:selected");

		$('#DispCompanyList option:selected').each(function() {
    		vals = $(this).val()
    		vals=vals.split(",")
    		SelectedSeg+= "," + vals[0]
			SelectedIndustry += "," + vals[1]
			SelectedCompany += "," + vals[2]
   		})
			SelectedSeg = SelectedSeg.substring(1)
			SelectedIndustry = SelectedIndustry.substring(1)
			SelectedCompany = SelectedCompany.substring(1)
			
		$.get( "filterGroup.cfm?filter=1&SelectedSeg=" + SelectedSeg + "&SelectedIndustry=" + SelectedIndustry + "&SelectedCompany=" + SelectedCompany, function (data) {
			dropdownGroup.html( data );
		});
	}

You need to change your naming
You are assigning SelectedCompany to an object
var SelectedCompany = $("#DispCompanyList option:selected");

So you cannot use it as a string later on
SelectedCompany += "," + vals[2]

Though this
var SelectedCompany = $("#DispCompanyList option:selected");

is never used from what you have posted, so you might be able to just delete it. Possibly a remnant from how you were trying to do it?
