Using selected values from a Multi Select Listbox in a SQL query

I have seen a few post concerning this but don't really understand fully as I am new to this.  I would appreciate any help

1) First I loop through the Listbox control and get the selected values:

Dim li As ListItem

For Each li In lbPClass.Items

If li.Selected = True Then

strPC += li.Value & ", "

End If


Label5.Text = strPC

The resulting string looks something like: 101, 102, 100 ,    I get rid of the last space and "," with the following statement

Label6.Text = Left(Label5.Text, Trim(Len(Label5.Text) - 2))

2) I would then like to use this in a SQL query using the IN statement based on a parameter called @PROPCLASS

The parameter is defined using:

Cmd.Parameters.Add(New OleDbParameter("@PROPCLASS", Label6.Text))

Here is my sql statement that ONLY works if either I only select one value from the listbox or I replace the parameter with IN( 101, 102, 100)

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM web_transfer WHERE ( PROP_CLASS IN (@PROPCLASS)) AND (ACRES >= @lowSize)AND (ACRES < @HighSize) AND (YEAR = @lowYear)AND (SALE_PRICE > @lowPrice) AND (SALE_PRICE < @highPrice) "

Please someone, how do I add this information into my SQL statement?  I have been pulling out my hair over this all afternoon and although I have leant some really useful things in the process I haven't made any headway.  I would appreciate any help.  Thanks in advance,

It may no be actual solution when u want to use in operator  we may not fix how many values we are going to pass. if its fixed one u can pass them as the parameters

cmd=new sqlcommand("select * from emp where sal in(@sal,@sal1,@sal2)",con)

Thanks Baba, but I don't know how many parameters to add.  It will change each time.  Can I do this dynamically??

Hi Steve,

I had similar sort of problem, but i was using datasets.May be this logic helps u a little

So, i collected all the selected items from List into Array.


for (int i=0; i<Array.GetLength(0); i++)


 int result = TableAdapater.insert(Array[i]);

since insert gives me a return value , i used result to hold it.Apart from that its of no use.

Multi-select ListBox and Select All
Hi,I'm having an issue with some JS code for IE6 (no need for x-browser) and multi-select listbox.I'm trying to implement a Select All button.Current code is : function SelectAll(obj){ for (var i = 0; i < obj.options.length; i++) { obj.options[i].selected = true; } } which logically seems to work.  The problem I have is that this does not seem to work until I click the multi-select again.  It seems that although the options are marked as selected, the screen does not update to reflect this until something triggers it (in this case trying to click in ...

Using a Multi-select Listbox as an SQL parameter for a GridView
Hi All,I'm confused. Using VWD2005 with VB.NET. Using a multiple select Listbox as a paramater in the SQL statement that populates the gridview.First of all I'm surprised that since the gridviews sqldatasource wizard lets you step through all the way to selecting a listbox control as a parameter in a SQL statement, Surely the wizard should automatically detect that the selected listbox is multi-select and asp should generate the code to handle multiple selected items? Anyway, I've read various posts and cannot establish what the correct ASP.NET solution is? This is ...

Multiple-Select Listbox only returns first selected value (and I'm not using SelectedItem...)

Ie If I select "Transducer, Pressure Transmitter, Pressure & Temperature" the following is returned: Transducer is selected;Pressure transmitter is not selected;Pressure & Temperature is not selected; I encoded the ampersand & so do not worry about string concat.

value of multi select listbox
Hey Guys, I have 2 listboxes on a page used for adding and removing from an available list to a selected list. I have the value property of my available list set to id's from a database. When i select multiple items at the same time from listbox 1 and move them to listbox 2, i am always getting the same value for all of the items in listbox 2. Whats worse is that instead of getting the datavaluefield, i get the index of listbox 1 as the value field. For example: I choose items 2,3,5 from listbox 1 and when they are moved to listbox 2, my item.value is always 2 instead of having...
