the explode() should have worked on that.  Something like:

$query = "SELECT DCD_Access FROM userdb WHERE ID = $user_ID";
$result4 = mysql_query($query) or die("Error");
$DCD = mysql_fetch_array($result4);
$myarray = explode( ",", $DCD['DCD_Access'] );
foreach ( $myarray as $val )
      {
        print "<option value='$val'>$val</option>\n";
      }

NASA, BBCI

I want to separate these but I either get what I show above as a single
value or the word "Array" depending on how I try to get to the values.
