Hi, I need to either be able to allow users to select
multiple items from a drop down datawindow or come up with
some other solution. I have not yet been able to come up
with a good solution. We do use PFC and I was trying to
figure out a way to use PFC for this and have not found it.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Nevermind, how quickly user requirements can change.

FYI: Do not believe this is possible with a DDDW. Use a
dropdown list box.

You are partly correct - DDDW and DDLB are both used to select one value to
be placed in a column. For multi-select, use a DW or a listbox control.

Oh yeah, that's right.
Haven't done it for a while.
There was something about making a listbox 'act like' a
DDLB.
Think I even pulled it off the newsgroups (or codexchange?)
somewhere. To the user, it looks very similar to a
multi-select DDDW.

There is an article by me in PBDJ - see http://pbdj.sys-con.com/node/480678
I had posted some code in CodeXchange too

You will have to pick the data and paste it into the listbox at the
start of the application. Can paste the code for that too.
