Looking for help, I'm creating a form that would be filled in online and is then sent to me via email. I cant figure out how to get the email to populate a drop-down menu option.

Here is the code of the email coming to me:

Name: [output name='Name']
Street Address: [output name='Street address']
City, State/providence : [output name='City, State/providence ']
Postal Code: [output name='Postal Code']
Country: [output name='Country']
Phone: [output name='Phone']
E-Mail Address: [output name='Email']
wheel model purchased: [output name='wheel model']
[output type='environment' name='HTTP_USER_AGENT']
[output type='environment' name='HTTP_HOST']

The "wheel model purchased" is a dropdown in the form, but will not populate with the option chosen??

Code from form I've created:

<td>Phone:</td><td colspan="4"><input name="Phone" type="text" id="Phone" size="25" /></td>
		<td>Email address:</td>
		<td colspan="4"><input name="Email" type="text" id="Email" size="25" /></td>
		<td>wheel model purchased:</td><td colspan="4"><select class=frmBg size="1" id="wheel model">

        		<option value="">Select One</option>
                        <option value="Aspin">Aspin</option>

Is it really okay that you don't have name='wheel model' on your <SELECT> tag?

Have you tried doing <option value = 'yourVARIABLE'>yourVARIABLE</option> ?

shineha's picked it
inputs require a name, value pair to get any output
'id' is used to reference the tag in the dom, for javascript, but not on form submission
no name, no value <select class=frmBg size="1" name='wheel model' id="wheel model"> a html instruction page on the <select> tag (w)(sh)ould tell you this requirement,
unfortunately its always about last in the instructions :P

sinmple <input> its about the first thing in the instructions
