More select boxes with db input

Recommended Posts

G'day

I love this forum ...great place for noobie like me to pick up pointers & REAL help.

 

If I have a list /menu how can I populate it with the results from a query.

 

Theres about 40 possible values so far

eg bob, bill, mary etc & growing all the time.

 

There must be a simpler way than adding to the list of options.

 

Assume the db is test

table is product

field is name

 

Thanks in advance

Ken
