Hello Rudolf,
Thank you for responding to my post, I really appreciate it.

I ran the script you sent me, and then I tried looking up the syntax to try
to figure out what it means. As it would be pointless for me just to take
suggestions that people send me and then not learn what they mean. The
resulkt of your code does in fact alphabatize the teams in the select list,
however there is a little problem with the end result.

your code:


  include ("C:\Program

  $fd = fopen ($teams, "r");
  while (!feof ($fd))
   $list = fgets($fd, 4096);
   $squads = explode("|", $list);
   $alphabetical[] = $squads[1];

   sort ($alphabetical);
   reset ($alphabetical);

   for ($i = 0; $i <= count($alphabetical) - 1; $i++)
   echo '<OPTION VALUE="'.
   fclose ($fd);


returns the follwoing html:
<OPTION VALUE="C">Casteldisangro</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="C">Castelnuovo</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="F">Florentia Viola</OPTION>

It is returning the first letter of $squads[1]. so the "id variable is
getting lost.That variable is $squads[0]. So in effect that vairable is
getting "lost" because when i modify the line

echo '<OPTION VALUE="'.

to read

echo '<OPTION VALUE="'. $squads[0].'">'.$alphabetical[$i].'</OPTION>'."\n";

then the HTML output becomes

<OPTION VALUE="19">Aglianese</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="19">Brescello</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="19">Casteldisangro</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="19">Castelnuovo</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="19">Florentia Viola</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="19">Grosseto</OPTION>

In other words what I am trying to do is something to the effect of
$alphabetical = $squads[1][0]. Then I want to sort that only by $squads[1].
When the html is returned, I want to be able to echo the $squads[0] as the
Value of the select dropdown.

Thanks again,
