You don't need to include the input button. If we can't figure out how you marked up your forms, then we should be called amateurs and thrown to the wolves.
That being said, [b]did you include values and names for the options?[/b] I've done stupid stuff like that before.

are you referring to the drop-down menu? if thats the one...Yes i did include "value" in the options

<option [b]value[/b]="NR5">NR5</option> <- are you referring to this one...? thanks
