putting selections in one area

I'd like to create an option to have selections all placed in one area.

For example, assume a model has 4 list boxes

US vs International

Years in business

Type of business (8 choices)

Distance (in miles)

I'd like to be able to quickly have users type in one area their choices vs going to 3 different lists.    Ideally I'd also want to limit their typing and use radio buttons (or something similar) to select.    For the type of business, someone might want to select more than one option.

One all the condtions are met, I'd serve up results in another table.

Re: putting selections in one area

The classic approach for this requirement is to use a MultiBox.

Another option is to create a Search Object (New sheet object, Search Object). On the General tab, click "Selected Fields" and then add the four fields you want to search with that object.

Another approach would be to use associative search -- although this feature is sometimes unknown to users.
