WebDesignFilter: I have a multi-select box with hundreds of elements in it. I need a better UI for it.

This is a multiselect box for a report generating page. Users need to keep the multi-select aspect of it, but it also needs to be much easier to use. On the same page there are many other form inputs to customize this report, so the solution cannot take up too much space.
A similar problem I had recently was a dropdown, which I replaced with an ajax powered incremental search. The problem is that doing that doesn't allow for multi-select features. Something similar might work though, if you can just point me in the right direction for making this less of a PITA to use.
