I hope the following script solves your problem.

<?php
if(isset($_POST['clickhere'])) {
	$selected_values = $_POST['color'];
	foreach($selected_values as $key=>$value) {
                // Insert query comes here.
		echo "Insert Query - ".$value."<br />";
	}
	
	$select_blue = (in_array('1',$selected_values)) ? "selected" : "";
	$select_green = (in_array('2',$selected_values)) ? "selected" : "";
	$select_red = (in_array('3',$selected_values)) ? "selected" : "";
	$select_yellow = (in_array('4',$selected_values)) ? "selected" : "";
	$select_white = (in_array('5',$selected_values)) ? "selected" : "";
}
?>

Rereading your original post, I'm a little confused. perhaps this wasn't what you wanted after all. Sorry.

$list = array('a','b','c','d','e','f','g','h');

$ms = '<select size="32" name="abc" id="abc"   multiple="multiple" style="width: 276px; height:200px;" class="slct">';
		foreach($list as $sl){
$ms .='<option value='.$sl.'>'.$sl.'</option>';
			}
$sms .= '</select><br>

//to insert in db table
$multiselect = explode(",",$_POST['abc']);
	foreach($multiselect as $selected){
	mysql_query = ("insert into table_name (selected_let) values ('$selected')");
}

Where did you want to do that process ? You've not FORM already within your HTML, which means that how do you pass these drop-down value and process that ?
Perhaps, it may not what you want. But try this:

<body>
<div>
<form name="colorswithcher" method="post" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>">
<select name="color[]" size="6" multiple="multiple">
<?php 
$colors = array("BLUE", "GREEN", "RED", "YELLOW", "WHITE");
?>
<?php 
if(isset($_POST['changecolor'])){
$sel = (array) $_POST['color'];
$top="";
$bottom="";
$separator = '<option value="" disabled="disabled">Select</option>';
	foreach($colors as $value=>$label){
		if(in_array($value, $sel)) {
			$top .= '<option value="' . $value . '">' . $label . '</option>';
		}
		else{
			$bottom .= '<option value="' . $value . '">' . $label . '</option>';
		}
	}
	echo $top . $separator . $bottom;
}
else{
	foreach($colors as $value=>$label){
		echo '<option value="' . $value . '">' . $label . '</option>';
	}
}
?>
</select>
<br />
<input type="submit" value="Change Color" name="changecolor" />
</form>
</div>
</body>
</html>

@ardav already showed good method, and I used it inside it. If your problem solved, @ardav solved you properly than me.
Hope this help!
