Importing multiple valued attributes

Not sure if that’s phrased properly, but I’m in the process of exporting data from a drupal cart to import into magento. This is for a comic book company and I’ve created custom attributes for issue credits (ie. writer, artist, creator, colorist ...) and allowed them to have multiple selections. Sometimes there will be multiple creators for various roles.

Is there a mechanism in the DataFlow to allow me to import multiple values for an attribute?

Thanks.

The best way to find out how to import something through DataFlow is to manually create an item with test values to the attributes, then export that item from DataFlow and review how it was exported.

In the case of multiselect fields, with a CSV the format is “Value , Value , Value” (space comma space between each value).
