multiple select list - posting

I have a multiple select list and I am trying to post to a page where
I have no option to use the request.form or vbscript to iterate
through the control. The page is a sql server reporting services
report. My question is, how can I populate a hidden textbox with
multiple selected values of a select list

1) without using two forms, one posting to populate the textbox with
the list values, and

2) one to post to the report.

right now I am close using javascript:

function onClick(object) {
var allvals='';
for (var Current=0;Curre nt <
object.MyList.o ptions.length;C urrent++)
var text = object.MyTextBo x ;
var Mysite = "<%=strWebSite% >"
if (object.MyList. options[Current].selected) {
text.value = object.MyList.o ptions[Current].text ;
allvals=allvals + text.value + ',' ;
else {
text.value = '';
} location.href= Mysite + '&MyList=' + allvals;

The only problem with this method is it returns a value like this:

value1,value2,v alue3,

I need:

'value1','value 2','value3'
This will ultimately be used in a SQL "where in (values)" statement,
which requires strings to have ' qualifiers. I can't figure out how
too add the apostrophes and drop the last comma in javascript. I am
no javascript pro and have scoured the ng looking for examples.

any help is appreciated

A Form has 2 select lists. The 1st one whose size is 5 (meaning 5 options are shown at any given time) allows multiple selection whereas the 2nd one allows only 1 option to be selected at a time. When an option is selected in the 2nd select list, the ASP page posts itself. Assume that the 1st select list has the following 10 options (note that both the select lists are actually populated from 2 different database tables): Australia
