Hi Guys

I'm having a problem which I suspect is very simple to sort out.

I normally use FM on a Mac, where I can easily select multiple items in a value list at the same time by using the Apple / Cmd key, then hit return to add all of those items to my choice.

However, I don't appear to be able to do the same thing on a PC. This may be because I'm attempting to do it using Virtual PC running Windows XP rather than a seperate machine, but maybe someone can help?

I've worked out that (on my Mac via VPC at least) I need to use Shift and Ctrl together to select multiple items, but when I select an item then try to select an item below it in the list, it deselects the original item. Strangely it doesn't do this if I select an item then select another item that is above it in the list.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance

Hi tv_kid, it also indicates that you are using the wrong tool. At any time, a User can make a mistake or slip-of-finger and delete the prior entries. That's what checkboxes are for. :wink2:
