I have a MySql database where I have a seperate field for each program \"Quark, Pagemaker, Photoshop, ect\" that may be on a certain computer. The value for each field is either Yes or No. Meaning yes its installed on the computer or No its not.

I want to create a page with a pull down list where I select the program leys say \"quark\" and it would bring me to a detail page listing all the computers that have Quark installed \"Yes\"
I understand how to do this if I was checking one field for yes or no , but because i have numerous fields i cand seem to come up with the code to do this.

Is there anyone out there who can help?

I am stuck on this project and cannot go any further without your help.
Let me explain it again.
I have appx 20 fileds named after programs which may be installed on a computer.
The fiels can contan either yes or no.

I want to creat a page with a puldown list where you select the program you want to use and it will goto a page that will display a list of computers tha t have this program installed.

This would be find if I had only one field to searcd but I have appx 20 fields. it has to first find the program field and see if a yes is in that field. I dont know how to code it to look for that field only to see if it contains a yes.

On the page with the pull down list I have to setup a variable.
When I select the value from the pull down list it gets assigned to the variable also.

The search query should look something like this I think..

Select ($Variable)
From lab
Where ($Variable) = yes

This is what I think the query should be like but I dont know how to write the real code...CAN you help.
