How do you extract multiple string values in an SPlookup field?

I tried the following but it didn't work

SPFieldLookupValue LookUpValues = new SPFieldLookupValue(oPage.ListItem["TaggingKeywords"].ToString());

oRow["TaggingKeywords"] = (LookUpValues.LookupValue.ToString());

You should use this:

string rawvalue = item["lookupFieldname"].ToString();
SPFieldLookupValueCollection values = new SPFieldLookupValueCollection(rawvalue);
foreach(SPFieldLookupValue value in values) String.Format("{0} {1}", value.LookupValue, value.LookupId);
