Add symbol in collection_select helper

i have a collection_select helper wich i retrieve a select multiple with
the names of my reports:

<%= f.collection_select :report_ids, @reports, :id, :name, {}, {
:multiple => true, :size => 10 } %>

but now i want to add the “surname” field to the list selectable.
i have tryed:

<%= f.collection_select :report_ids, @reports, :id, “#{:name}
#{:surname}” , {}, { :multiple => true, :size => 10 } %>

but i obtain an error.
what is the correct sintax?


<%= :report_ids, { |r| [“#{}
#{r.surname}”,] } , {}, :multiple => true, :size => 10 %>

I am new to rails, here why dont we use a method which is not a
table attribute but a user defined one which is defined as we need
like display of both surname and name concatenated.
i tried but i am getting error pls clarify me thanks in advance
