Setting values in Airtable multi select field

I am trying to populate a multi-select field in Airtable using with array data from a form. The form values are the same as the values setup in the multi select field in Airtable. I can update a single value using but i wish to update all the values in the array. Is there a syntax to achieve this with one record update and if not can someone describe how i could iterate through the array to make multiple single updates?
Many thx in advance.

Hi Ian @dude,

I believe you’ll want to use an array as the value for the field.

If you have a comma-separated string of values you want to add, split them into an array using a split() function.
Then, submit the result of that as the value for the multi-select field.


TY so much Donald, that works perfectly.
