Help rqd on piece of code dynamic menu

Recommended Posts

I have a code problem

 

I havea list/menu box in a form, which will be updated on submission

 

The list is a list of countries from a My Sql Table.

 

I wish to pre-enter the record which already exists, which I can do from identifying the Unique record ID.

 

However, I then want the drop down box reveal all the countries listed in that table

 

For some reason, I can either populate the drop down list with this coding

 

<select name="Ecom_ShipTo_Postal_CountryCode" >

<?php

while(!$countrylist->EOF){

?>

<option value="<?php echo $countrylist->Fields('COUNTRY')?>"><?php echo $countrylist->Fields('COUNTRY')?></option>

<?php

$countrylist->MoveNext();

}

$countrylist->MoveFirst();

?>

 

or insert the existing choice of the user, by adding this code.

 

<select name="Ecom_ShipTo_Postal_CountryCode" title="<?php echo $existingrecord->Fields('Country'); ?>" >

 

<?php

while(!$countrylist->EOF){

?>

<option value="<?php echo $countrylist->Fields('COUNTRY')?>"><?php echo $countrylist->Fields('COUNTRY')?></option>

<?php

$countrylist->MoveNext();

}

$countrylist->MoveFirst();

?>

</select>

 

What I need is code which will display the existing entry, AND allow the drop down list box to display the countries from the MYsql table
