Adding Subscriber with Multi Option Custom Field

Hey all,

Have come across an interesting question that I can't seem to answer myself nor can I find an answer to on these forums.

I'm trying to add a subscriber with custom fields (using the AddWithCustomFields API call). It's adding the subscriber without issue with standard 'Text' custom fields, however it doesn't appear to be saving the 'multi-option' field - and I've tried everything as the 'value' in the SOAP call.

So, for example, say the custom field is 'Age Group', and it has the following options:

Under 25
25 - 34 years
35 - 44 years
45 - 54 years
55 - 64 years
65 and over

I've tried to use the actual textual content of each option as the value for the custom field Key, AND also the mailbuild-assigned ID (e.g. 10999 - like you see in the 'create a subscribe form' auto generated HMTL) but no luck with either.

Ideas? Have I missed something really simple here? :)
