            var editor = new $.fn.dataTable.Editor( {
                ajax: "program_data/learning_event_data.php",
                table: "#learning_event_table",
                template: '#learning_event_form',
                fields: [ {
                    label: "Learning Event:",
                    name: "learning_event.learning_event_name"
                }, {
                    label: "Learning Event Outcomes:",
                    name: "learning_event.learning_event_outcome",
                    type: "ckeditorClassic"
                }, {
                    label: "Presentations:",
                    name: "learning_event_presentation_lookup.presentation_fk",
                    type: "select",
                    placeholder: 'No selection',
                    placeholderDisabled: false,
                    placeholderValue: 0,
                    multiple: true
                }, {
                    label: "Conditions:",
                    name: "learning_event_mcondition_lookup.mcondition_fk",
                    type: "select",
                    placeholder: 'No selection',
                    placeholderDisabled: false,
                    placeholderValue: 0
                }, {
                    label: "Rotation/Discipline/Block Sub-group:",
                    name: "learning_event.rdb_group_fk",
                    type: "select",
                    placeholder: 'No selection',
                    placeholderDisabled: false,
                    placeholderValue: 0
                }, {
                    label: "Rotation/Discipline/Block:",
                    name: "learning_event.rotation_discipline_block_fk",
                    type: "select"
                } ]
            } );

    Sounds like you are attempting to save an array in a string. Do you want to save it as a delimited string, or are you going to use an Mjoin?

    Thanks Allan, sounds like I will need to use Mjoin given the one to many relationships and I am using a link table.

    One question: I gather a multi select will work with Mjoin and allow updating to add more child records to the parent?
