Your question does not explain what you want to achieve? Can you be a little more clear?
Karthik Harve 22-Apr-13 8:00am

Do you want to show all column of table in gridview or single one ?
Aner Bautista 22-Apr-13 13:00pm
To tell you the truth, I don't get if you want to select more than one value from the dropdownlist or if you want to filter more columns in your query (obviously using other controls on your page).

Please help us, to help you, adding more details.

Hi Member 7909184334,

As per my understanding, you need to select multiple values in a combobox which are to be used in the search query.

If so, then you can get the combobox selected values in an array and set the query as follows:

string str = "SELECT * FROM ['ISB VAS Nodes$'] WHERE HardDisks IN (" + a[0].toString() + ", " + a[1].toString() + ", " + a[2].toString() + ")";

The above part shows that there are only 3 selected options. We can make it dynamic as below:

First get all the selected options into an array, lets call it as aryOptions

string params = string.Empty;
// Get the array items into a comma seperated string
for(int i = 0; i < aryOptions.Length; i++)
     params = params + aryOptions[i] + ",";
// Remove the last comma
if(params.Length > 0)
   params = params.SubString(0, parmas.Length - 1); 
// pass the value with WHERE IN clause
string str = "SELECT * FROM ['ISB VAS Nodes$'] WHERE HardDisks IN (" + params  + ")";

Please try this let me know the result.

Thank you,
