Hello all,

I'm trying for the first time to use a dynamically created popup menu from a
mysql database.  The menu is of (article) writers' names and will be used in
a select query.

Using snippets of code I've gleaned from here and the mysql list, I've the
popup working fine but I'd like to include either a blank entry or a 'Search
all Writers' entry in the menu and this is where I'm stuck.

The code I have is:

$getlist = mysql_query("SELECT distinct Writer FROM stories");
echo " <select name=\"WriterName\">\n";
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($getlist)) {
echo ' <option value="'.$row["Writer"].'">'.$row["Writer"]."</option>\n";
echo " </select>\n";

If anyone could point me in the right direction or direct me to appropriate
documentation I'd be most appreciative.

Cheers and thanks
