Hi,

I have a multiple select box that has two values.  

I need to insert my values into my table, but not sure how to do it.

My code works fine with one value in my multiple select box, but I have two values this time.

So, I need your help please.

Thanks,
Lulu

The number in the select is the segment 
the name in the select is the group name

<select name="DispSelectedGroupBox" class="SearchBySelect5" id="DispSelectedGroupBox" style="background-color: #f8fafc; width: 250px; height: 100px;" size="180" multiple="multiple" sizzle-1394543330211="[object Object]">

<option value="2,A & A DRIVING SCHOOL" data-companyname="A & A DRIVING SCHOOL"></option>

<option value="2,A & A HARDWARE & AUTO SUPPLY" data-Companyname="A & A HARDWARE & AUTO SUPPLY"></option>

<option value="2,A & A MANUFACTURING INC" data-Companyname="A & A MANUFACTURING INC"></option>

</select>


<cfloop list="#FORM.DispSelectedGroupBox#" index="GroupImpacted" delimiters=","> 

<cfquery name = "QGroupImpacted"  datasource='#strDSN#' username='#strUID#' password='#strPWD#'>

INSERT INTO SelectedGroup (GroupName, SegmentID, IssueID, CreatedDate)
VALUES (

	<cfif #form.DispSelectedGroupBox# neq ''>
<cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_integer" value="#GroupImpacted.GroupName#">, 
			</cfif>
<cfif #form.DispSelectedGroupBox# neq ''>
<cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_integer" value="#GroupImpacted.SegmentID#">, 
			</cfif>
     #IssueIDVal#,      
  <cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_date" value="#Now()#" />
)
</cfquery> 
</cfloop>

First you have to change the delimited in the option value to a semicolon instead of a comma.   Having a comma between the 2 and the Name causes confusion between the list of options selected (delimited by a comma) and the separation of the ID and the Name.


<!---- you have to change the delimiter between the 2 and the Name to a ; so it doesn't get confused with the comma delimited list of selected options ---->
<select name="DispSelectedGroupBox" class="SearchBySelect5" id="DispSelectedGroupBox" style="background-color: #f8fafc; width: 250px; height: 100px;" size="180" multiple="multiple" sizzle-1394543330211="[object Object]">
  <option value="2;A & A DRIVING SCHOOL" data-companyname="A & A DRIVING SCHOOL"></option>
  <option value="2;A & A HARDWARE & AUTO SUPPLY" data-Companyname="A & A HARDWARE & AUTO SUPPLY"></option>
  <option value="2;A & A MANUFACTURING INC" data-Companyname="A & A MANUFACTURING INC"></option>
</select>


<!---- this will loop for each of the selections of the drop down box, one loop for each selected option ---->
<cfloop list="#FORM.DispSelectedGroupBox#" index="GroupImpacted" delimiters=","> 
    <!---- this will split the value of the selected option into the two parts, the ID and the Name ---->
    <cfset theID   = listFirst(GroupImpacted,";")>
    <cfset theName = listLast(GroupImpacted,";")>

	<cfquery name = "QGroupImpacted"  datasource='#strDSN#' username='#strUID#' password='#strPWD#'>
	   INSERT INTO SelectedGroup (GroupName, SegmentID, IssueID, CreatedDate)
	   VALUES (
	         <cfqueryparam cfsqltype="CF_SQL_VARCHAR" value="#theName#">
			,<cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_integer" value="#theID#">
	        , #IssueIDVal#
	        , <cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_date" value="#Now()#" />
	    )
	</cfquery> 
</cfloop>
