Copying/updating multi-value choice column

Simple question on Nintex Workflow 2010

 

I have a choice column that allows multiple values. Let's say those choices are "A" and "B".

 

If I read the value of the column in a workflow the possile values are-

  1. A
  2. B
  3. A, B

 

However when I try to write values into the column, the single values work but setting the string "A, B" on the column doesn't select both the "A" and "B" values. I have tried separatig the values with a comma or a semicolon, with or without the space after the separator.

 

I remember a similar problems with people picker fields that required you to build this weirdly constructed setting string that looked like-

 

-1;#A;-1;#B

 

but that's not working either.

 

Any clues would be much appreciated, and PLEASE Nintex can we have some useful help WITH EXAMPLES on this type of issue in the online help and manuals, which currently manage to be full of words and not much information.
