Dropdown box in Sharepoint 2007 dataview and being able to select more than one option RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a list and it has several items in the dropdown box.  When  you click on it in Sharepoint I want the user to select all that apply.  Is there a way to place check boxes in the dropdown box so the user can select two or three choices?  I hope this makes sense.

  • Thanks Mike.  Do I do that in SharePoint on the Datalist view or in SharePoint Designer?  Where is it located in both of them as I'm clicking on items and don't see and option.
