This is untested, but it's a pretty familiar idiom to me at the moment.

<dtml-in selectmoduleinfoMethod prefix="dbmodlevel">
    <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('dbmodlevel', dbmodlevel_item)">
<select name="MODLEVEL">
<dtml-in "range(1, 8)" prefix="modlevel">
<option<dtml-if expr="modlevel_item == dbmodlevel"> selected="selected"</dtml-if>><dtml-var modlevel_item></option>

Hmm, this doesn't appear to work.

Let me explain what I'm trying to do.

I have a Z SQL Method called selectmoduleinfoMethod that contains the SQL:

MODCODE type="string">

This recordset is returned to a dtml form to populate the fields ready for

One of the database table entries returned from this query is the value of MODLEVEL, this modlevel can be one of seven choices that appear in a select
list. However I'd like the one returned from the database to appear as
selected in the form for editing.

As far as I can see the example you gave me does not retrieve the value of MODLEVEL from the returned SQL recordset it only checks for its existence
and consequently cannot test for the conditions.

Any Ideas how I may resolve this?

How can I do this with dtml?

<select name="MODLEVEL" size="1">
        <dtml-if expr="<dtml-var name="MODLEVEL"> == 1"> #I need an
alternative to this.
                <option value="1" selected="selected">1</option>
                <option value="2"><2</option>
                Etc, etc.

<dtml-if MODLEVEL>
        <select name="MODLEVEL:int" size="1">
                <option value="1" <dtml-if expr="MODLEVEL ==
1">SELECTED</dtml-if> >1</option>
                <option value="2" <dtml-if expr="MODLEVEL ==
2">SELECTED</dtml-if> >2</option>
                Etc, etc.
