SelectValues on top of other SelectValues

Hi There,

I'm trying to do the following by programatically selecting values in fields. (long story as to why)...

I've created a simple example below to illustrate the point.

I basically want to select values in 1 field e.g. the PhoneNbr and then also select values in another field e.g. Account_Nbr.

n.b. I can't use the load script, bookmarks, triggers or any internal qlikview functions though as I strictly want to use the api.

What happens is I can only select from one field at a time. The field objects SelectValues call seems to blow away the previous selections.

Is there another method I can try?


Sub SetSelections



          set PhoneNbrValues = ActiveDocument.Fields("PhoneNbr").GetNoValues


          PhoneNbrValues.Item(0).text = "0882686988"

          PhoneNbrValues(0).IsNumeric = false

          set Account_NbrValues = ActiveDocument.Fields("Account_Nbr").GetNoValues


          Account_NbrValues.Item(0).text = "ABC01"

          Account_NbrValues(0).IsNumeric = false


  Account_NbrValues.Item(1).text = "ABC02"

  Account_NbrValues(1).IsNumeric = false

          ActiveDocument.Fields("PhoneNbr").SelectValues PhoneNbrValues ' This filter is lost once the next one is applied.

          ActiveDocument.Fields("Account_Nbr").SelectValues Account_NbrValues 'This is the filter that is applied
