If you see no errors this might mean you have no records :-)

Subject: Re: [PHP] Building Dynamic Value list using ohp


what's the error you're getting now?

if you aren't getting any error, but it just isn't working try something
like...(note that I haven't tested this code).

 $drop_down_list = "<select name=\"select\">";

$link = mysql_connect ('localhost', '****', '****')
or die ("Could not select db");
mysql_select_db ('Heronsql')
or die ("Could not connect");
$query="select distinct HEI from heronuser";
$result = mysql_query ($query);
$num = mysql_num_rows($result);
        for ($i = 0; $i < $num; $i++) {
            $HEI = mysql_result($result, $i, "HEI");
            $drop_down_list .= "<option value=\"$HEI\">$HEI</option>";
        }
mysql_close($link);

$drop_down_list .= "</select>";

echo "$drop_down_list";


Cheers the noo,

Derek
