Hello,

I have a listbox that is part of a submit form.

I want this listbox to display values that are multiplied from another field in the URL.

So...Basically when the page loads a parameter called 'nocase' has a value in the url, something like 6, 12, etc

Say for instance the nocase parameter in the URL is '4' i want the list box to put 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24,

And if the nocase URL parameter is 12, i want the listbox to display 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, etc

Please help...and stuck

Regards

change $i=2 to $i=1 in your for loop

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 :)
