Can anyone tell me what I am missing here,

The Select statement does not populate my drop down window? unsure.gif

My drop down box is empty !







include '../db.php';


$how = mysql_query("SELECT count(distinct(account)) from Backlog") or die ("Something bad happened: " . mysql_error());

$how_many = mysql_result($how, 0);


echo "<h3>$how_many Accounts to pick from !!!</h3>";


$sql = mysql_query("SELECT distinct(Account) FROM Backlog")or die ("Something bad happened here: " . mysql_error()) ;


echo "<select name=\"account\">\n";

echo "<option>\n";


while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($sql))


      echo ' <option value="'.$row["account"].'">'.$row["account"]."</option>\n";



echo "</select>\n";




[end snip]
