Hey everyone..

I am relatively new to PHP and JS and I need help.

I need to populate a dropdown list from a db(mysql). I can do it just with PHP.
The problem arises when I add another of the same dropdown to my form using javascript.
I need the combo box to show the same values that come from the MySQL DB.

Is there any way to accomplish this? Waiting on a reply....

Thanks
V

Well I am sorry I did not give enough info.
Here goes....

This is the code where I a create a dropdown with options fetched from the DB using option_fetch()

<select name="options[]" id="options1">
    <option value="0">-- For Options --</option>
         <?php 
	    include_once "test1.php";
	    option_fetch();
	 ?>
</select>

test1.php

function option_fetch() 
{
  include_once "connect.php";
  $con = connectDB(); //part of connect.php this works fine... 
  $query = "Select * from options"; 								
  $result = mysql_query($query) or die("SQL Error -->". mysql_error());
  while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
	print '<option value="$row["options"]">'.$row["options"].'</option>\n';
}

Now I have a button that adds another row with the same field into the opt div.

<input type="button" name="addrow" id="addrow" value="Add another Row" onclick="javascript: return addRow('opt');">

The function addRow(divName) creates another row with the same field. But, it creates an empty dropdown and doesnt fetch from the DB.

addRow(divName)
{
    var divN = divName;
	var cnt = 1;
	alert(divN);
	var newdiv = document.createElement('div');
	newdiv.id = 'newrow'+cnt;
	document.getElementById(divN).appendChild(newdiv);
	alert(newdiv.id);
	document.getElementById(newdiv.id).innerHTML = 
        '<div id ="row_+cnt">'+
	   '<table border="0">'+
	      '<tr>'+
		'<td width="20%" align="left" style="color:black; background-color:#FFF8C6;">'+
	           '<select name="option1[]" id="option1[]" onclick="">'+
		       '<option value="0">-- For Options --</option>'+
                      //Need to add code to retrieve value from the DB as shown above
                   '</select>'+
		'</td>'+
              '</tr>'+
	  '</table>'+
	'</div>';
     cnt++;
}

I am stuck at this point. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks a ton.
