Hi Marni,

I am new to LibreOffice, and downloaded it initially for Base.  The main purpose for my database 
search is to create a music library, with details such as vocal parts, church season, instruments, 
etc.  Some of these would be best suited as a multiple select option in the form, but I seem to be 
having difficulty creating that.  Am I missing something?  This is my third attempt to find a 
database program that will give me this it possible in Base?

Try looking here :

Basically, from what I understand of the above threads, if you want to bind the multiple values selected to a database field, then this is not possible with the current multiple selection control property.

A multiple selection is only available for a free standing form control list, i.e. one in which the data is presented or displayed in a Writer form or Calc sheet, but can not be bound to a database field, unless you store the values individually in a corresponding table (n-m relationship). Alternatively, it is also apparently possible to do this using a macro to write the data from the multiple selection into corresponding fields in a bound table.

As far as I know, Base does not currently support writing to ENUM or SET data types, and most likely the control properties do not provide for that within the current UNO API (although I haven't checked).
