right what i need to do is create 2 collumns for a html form, one of these is the ID and needs to be hidden and one collumn is full of options associated with these ID's the table which these two collumns are located on the database is called tbl_typesofbusiness and i just cant figure this out ive got the option box up but thats as far as i got i cant get two collumns up and they is no options in the option box, i just cant hack it ive been trying for a while and im confused to hell.

	<tr>
		<td>Type of Business:</td><td> 
		<select name="typeofbusiness">
		<?php $sql = sprintf("SELECT tbl_typesofbusiness.id, tbl_typesofbusiness.Agent FROM tbl_typesofbusiness")?></td>
		<td><span class="error">* <?php if (isset($errors['typeofbusiness'])) echo $errors['typeofbusiness']; ?></span></td>
		
	</tr>

they is no errors on this code but i still cant seem to find a solution to it aswell theres only one record in the table at the moment which is called test1 with an id of 1.

Edit  :pirate: oops....

 

To make a dropdown you need to output a <select> field with <options>'s.

$sql = 'SELECT tbl_typesofbusiness.id, tbl_typesofbusiness.Agent FROM tbl_typesofbusiness';
if ($result = mysqli_query($con, $sql))
{
    echo '<form action="addeadstemplate.php" method="post">'; // start the form

    echo '<select name="businessAgents">';                                             // start a dropdown menu
    while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($result))
    {
        echo '<option value="' . $row['id'] . '>' . $row['testcollumn'] . '</option>'; // add options to the menu
    }
    echo '</select>';                                                                  // close the dropdown menu

    echo '<input type="submit" />';                                                    // submit button

    echo '</form>';                                                                    // close the form
}

Is mysqli_error($con) outputting an error message on 252? If so, what.

 

Off-topic, looking at your current code I see you totally ignored my advice on the "the, The, THE" problem! Why do I bother? :facewall:

 


elseif(strpos($_POST['companyname'], 'The ') !== false)

{

$errors['companyname'] = 'Company Names cant start with The';

}

elseif(strpos($_POST['companyname'], 'the ') !== false)

{

$errors['companyname'] = 'Company Names cant start with the';

}

elseif(strpos($_POST['companyname'], 'THE ') !== false)

{

$errors['companyname'] = 'Company Names cant start with THE';
