Insert Multiple values into column

Insert Multiple values into column

I have a standard select multiple form element that is supposed to insert multiple values into a table like this. Only problem is that it is only saving one value. Database column is an INT with a length of 12 so there should be plenty of room to save multiple values? How do I do this?

<select name="contrID" size="3" multiple="multiple" id="contrID">
do {
<option value="<?php echo $row_Contractors['userID']?>"><?php echo $row_Contractors['fname']?></option>
} while ($row_Contractors = mysql_fetch_assoc($Contractors));
$rows = mysql_num_rows($Contractors);
if($rows > 0) {
mysql_data_seek($Contractors, 0);
$row_Contractors = mysql_fetch_assoc($Contractors);

in php a miultiple select list needs a little more work

1) The name must end with [] to convert the select list to pass an array:
<select name="contrID"

<select name="contrID[]"

add the following code at line 1 to convert the multiple selection array to a comma seperated list:


if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST")     {
$_POST as $key => $val) {
is_array($_POST[$key])) $_POST[$key] = implode(", "$_POST[$key]);
