[code]
<?php
$initMO = "01"; // Jan
$month = array();
$month ['01'] = 'Jan';$month ['02'] = 'Feb';$month ['03'] = 'Mar';$month ['04'] = 'Apr';
$month ['05'] = 'May';$month ['06'] = 'Jul';$month ['07'] = 'Jun';$month ['08'] = 'Aug';
$month ['09'] = 'Sep';$month ['10'] = 'Oct';$month ['11'] = 'Nov';$month ['12'] = 'Dec';

?>
<select name="MONTH" size="1">
<?php foreach($month as $mo =>$key) {?>
   <option selected value= <?=$key?> <?php if($key == $initMo)echo "selected"; ?><?= $mo ?></option>
<?php } /* End foreach loop */ ?>
[/code]


The above code will allow you to initialize the month to wahtever you set the $initMO to and will keep to your "01", "02" standards..

edit: whops, used "checked" instead of "selected"

Hi-

We tried the code and it gave us a message that initMo was an undeclared variable
in each line of the selkectbox

that will fix it for you
