Pardon the ColdFusion tags....  I'd prefer to be doing this in PHP but gotta use what the customer has!
<form>
<select name="racks" size="20" >
<cfoutput query="racks">
<option value="#RACO_OBJECT_ID#">#RACO_RACK_NAME#</option>
</cfoutput>
</select>
</form>

That correctly populates a list with 20 or so options but when all is said and done, the very last record is selected which is a little bit annoying and I would prefer for the first option to be selected.

Would appreciate a fix or some insight. Thanks :).

FIXED.
I simply took off the </option> tags after each option...

I won't even ask...
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
