I have saved the values on the right side of multi-select lookup column in an array . When i click on "save" to save the form, the values are getting saved properly. But when i try to edit the form again, array becomes empty so the values are lost. can somebody help me how to retain those values across page postback

Thanks Ranjani

I guess you could technically use the SessionState for this scenario but I think you really need to be loading the saved values on edit.

What would happen if someone tried to edit the form at a later date, potentially on another computer? You would have to load the values, so you might as well do that in this instance too.
