Splitting values to re-store the ID back into the database.

Hey guys,

I've finally got the AutoSuggest to work, It successfully gets the data from the database and then shows it in the search (limited to 3 results)

My problem is, I dont know how to access these 3 values (could be 1,2 or 3) and then store them as 3 variables (if 2 are chosen, the 3rd value would be NULL).

I checked the comments and found this:
'var arr = $(".as-values").val().split(",");'

I have 2 columns the query gets, one is the category_id, which is 'value' and the second one is name which is 'name'.

I'm not sure how to use this? Wil the '".as-values"' have to match the ID column? so this should be renamed to '".value"'

Any help would be kindly appreciated and if possible, with code examples.
