Your state list is great - but with just a couple of fairly simple adjustments it has become very very useful (and easy to use) in PHP. 1. Add <?=$ALstate;?> to each line, except change the AL to the state abbreviation (so, for Arizona, add <?=AZstate;?> between the value and the closing angle-bracket examples: >Alabama >Alaska (etc.) 2. Save in an include file (I used 'state.php') 3. In your code that includes state.php... a. After reading your database, assign the state to a variable b. Double-Assign the variable the value 'selected' c. include state.php example: Note that $my is an associative array containing the data from one record in a database (MySQL in this case) ?> $startstate=$my["M_STATE"].'state'; // add the .'state'; to help ensure the 2-character variable is unique $$startstate='selected'; // use the double-$ to create a variable with the name contained in the VALUE (e.g. AZstate) include('state.php'); // include the file and the state will be pre-selected by the state already in use ?>
