<form name="form1" action="/cgi-bin/" method="post">
<select name="selectFile">
<option value="one">One</option>
<option value="two">Two</option>
<input type="submit" value="Send" name="sbmt">

In perl m accessing the value as:

$FileName = $query->param('selectFile'); // selectFile is the name of the combobox in html.

If i try to print $FileName, it doesnt print anything.
