    Hello tyolu.

    What database are you using? You will first need to setup the database connection...

    Hello tyolu,

    Are you putting the returned SQL results in a Resultset? Please post your code for us to see.

    You will need to do something similar to this with a for loop:

    <select>
    <%
             for(----)
               {
                          String line =  Resultset object
                          out.print("<option>"+line+"   </option>");
     
                }
     
    %>
    </select>
