Open original thread
Hi Guys,

I'm trying to populate each drop down with items that are labled as productpr[number] and qty[number] from a database, however it keeps creating a new drop down for each result, probably something really simple, but would appreciate the help.

Regards,
James


data look like this...

ID | PIDx | QTYx | Price | jPrice | CartDescription | ViewDescription
1 | productpr1 | qty1 | 10 | 10 | 1 | 1
2 | productpr1 | qty1 | 10 | 10 | 1a | 1a
3 | productpr2 | qty2 | 11 | 11 | 2 | 2
4 | productpr2 | qty2 | 11 | 11 | 2a | 2a

creating a html like this;
<b>Choose an Operating System</b>
<input type="hidden" value="1" name="qty1">
<select name="productpr1">
<option>---</option>
<option id="10" value="1:10">1</option>
</select>
<br><br>


<?
$objConnect = mysql_connect("localhost","username","password") or die(mysql_error());
$objDB = mysql_select_db("database");
$strSQL = "SELECT * FROM puterz";
$objQuery = mysql_query($strSQL) or die ("Error Query [".$strSQL."]");
?>
