I'm sending this to both lists as I'm not sure where the problem is, but I
believe it is an issue with my HTML form. Here's the problem:

I have a drop-down menu form on my webpage with employee names in it. When I
choose a name and click submit it gets passed to a php page which accesses a
mysql database and displays information about that employee.

The problem is that the form is not sending the employee name to the php
page. If I insert the name in the php page manually, it works fine, so the
problem appears to be with the form.

Can someone help me out here - a sample of my code is below. I'm not sure
how to explain this, but whatever gets sent to the PHP page has to be one
variable - i.e. if I choose John, then the variable that gets sent to the
PHP should have the value John, if I choose Mary, the value of the variable
should be Mary. Hope this makes sense.
