Multiple Form Selection (Where In)
Allowing multiple choices of data observations enables people to customize views of your data and adds value to your applications. The following example utilizes our db on the career statistics of Hammeriní Hank Greenberg. The years he played are available to select from in a dropdown menu. When multiple years are selected they are passed comma delimited. Utilizing the where in statement in our sql the comma delimited selections are appended to our sql statement to display only those years selected. Because we are looking for numeric values in our where in statement no modification to the comma delimited input is necessary. When character input is involved a replace statement can be used to put the appropriate quotation marks into your statement. Which is also provided in this example, but must be un-commented to be used.

' Create an sql statement that will select all the table elements
' A single selection will simply query for that year
' Multiple selections will be passed
' already comma delimited. Which is fine for numerics
' However for text queries uncomment the two lines below
' beginging with u_input and uncomment the sql query for alpha

' For text queries u_input will need to be comma delimited and in single quotes
' We replace the commas with ',' and change the sql to include single quotes around u_input

' The sql statement is written to the browser
' to demonstrate this.
