Hi
I have an array that I need to convert to comma seperated for inclusion in mysql. I have posted my code and would appreciate any help or guidance. Thanks

output:

[boxdest] => Array
        (
            [0] => WD1
            [1] => WD10
            [2] => WD11
        )

php

<?php
	        $conn = mysql_connect("localhost","root","");
		mysql_select_db("sample",$conn); 
		$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM boxes where department = '{$_GET['dept']}' ORDER BY custref ASC");
?>
								
		<select name="boxdest[]" id="boxdest" size="7" multiple="multiple">

<?php
		$i=0;
		while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
?>
		<option value="<?php echo $row["custref"];?>"><?php echo $row["custref"];?></option>
<?php
		$i++;
		}
?>
		</select>

<input type="button" id="submit2" name="submit2" value=">" />
<input type="button" id="submit3" name="submit3" value="<" />
<select name="boxdest2[]" id="boxdest2" size="7"  multiple="multiple"></select>

<script type="text/javascript">
	
  $('#submit2').click(function () {
  var selected = $('#boxdest > option:selected');
  $('#boxdest2').append(selected.clone());
  selected.hide();
});

   $('#submit3').click(function () {
   $('#boxdest').append($('#boxdest2 > option').clone());
   $('#boxdest2').empty();
});
</script>

results page
This is what I have tried in results page

if (isset($_POST['boxdest'])) 
	{
 
        if (!empty($_POST['boxdest'])) 
		{
 								
                $destroydata = split(',', $_POST['boxdest'][0]);
 		$result = array();
                
                                                                
                foreach ($destroydata as $val4)
                {
			if ( $val4 != "" )
                        {
                                
                                  $boxdest[] = $val4;
				  $result[] = $boxdest;
				    
                        }
              }
      }
