Multiple selection in a popup-menu (select filed)
Hi,

I admit that this might be a truly stupid question, but I've been looking around and simply couldn't find the answer. I am looking for a way to search for multiple words (from a select field presented as popup-menu) which will be linked using the Boolean Mod.
Example: I have a list of research topics (eg Electrochemistry, Impedance, Ceramics, Coatings) which are visible in a popup-menu (ie a select field); let's assume that the field that holds this data is called 'ResearchTopics'. What I am looking for is a possibility to select more then one item of the list (eg electrochemistry AND ceramics, which would result in an URL containing '&ResearchTopics=electrochemistry ceramics&bool=and' somewhere) and to have dbman look for all these items. After instlling the multiple select filed MOD I get to select multiple fields from a select field (however not presented as pop-menu) but the problem is that the resulting url is something like '&ResearchTopics=electzrochemistry&ResearchTopics=ceramics'; however, dbman does not seem to understand this kind of syntax.
As I said before, I have the boolean mod installed and it works perfectly fine (if I do a search using a text box for entering the search terms).
Any help on how a multiple selection in a select field can be done would be greatly appreciated.

Thanx in advance
