Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

so what was it then the way i set the select up then can you exsplain what was wrong cheers m8.

the code is only for me to understand as a test code to see how it works as meny ask the same question so i was intrested to get it going thank you for the ansaw m8.

ok i get it if you take the <select name=' '> out of the while loop then it only sees it as one select statement but if within the while loop then loops all.

solved cheers.
