I had a similar issue on a form I created. There are basically two ways to
make this work. One is server-side the other using JavaScript. I chose the
former for mine.

I simply just inserted the chosen selection as the first item in the list
then followed it with the query data.  Assuming when the form is rendered
there is a REQUEST variable customerid as your example it would look
something like this:

<select name=customerId>
<dtml-in sql_getCustomerName>
    <option value=<dtml-var customerId>><dtml-var firstName> <dtml-var
<dtml-in "sql_getCustomers(omit=customerId)">
    <option value=<dtml-var customerId>><dtml-var firstName> <dtml-var

This should do it. The first query (sql_getCustomerName) will return one
record of the customer info by customerId. This returns the current
customer's name for the list. The second query (sql_getCustomers) returns
every customer except the one specified by omit. The omit argument could be
made optional to return all in other instances.

Hope that helps,
