I am chosing an option from database using the field named as "name". since i have the name "supriya" 3 times in my database, it displays 3 times in my dropdown.

How do i restrict it by displaying the name only one time and once it is choosen, then it fetches all the 3 records having the name "supriya" and its id too.

Try this

    <head>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function stateChanged(){
    if(httpxml.readyState==4){
    var myObject = eval('(' + httpxml.responseText + ')');

    //document.getElementById("display").innerHTML=myObject;
    var msg=myObject.value[0].message;
    if(msg.length > 0){document.getElementById("msg").innerHTML=msg;}
    else{document.getElementById("msg").style.display='none';}
    var str="<table width='50%' bgcolor='#ffffff' align=center><tr><th>Name</th><th>Idea</th></tr>";
    var color="#f1f1f1";
    for(i=0;i<myObject.data.length;i++)
    { 
    if((i%2)==0){color="#ffffff";}
    else{color="#f1f1f1";}
    str = str + "<tr bgcolor="+color+"><td>" + myObject.data[i].ind_reg_id + " </td><td>"+ myObject.data[i].ind_reg_name + "</a></td></tr>"
    }
    str = str + "</table>" ;
    document.getElementById("display").innerHTML=str;
    }
    }
    var url="subcat2.php";
    var ind_reg_id=document.myForm.ind_reg_id.value;

when i use DISTINCT the field in dropdown is displayed only once, but the dropdown doesnot reacts, whereaes i used GROUP BY which display the repeated field only once and also dropdown reacts

*But the problem on using GROUPBY is it fetches only one record, so what should i do *

0

I have the fieldname as name and id as id,
My data in database is

1 priya
2 hema
3 himanshu
4 sanjjev
5 himanshu
6 priya
7 asif
.
.
.

now i want to get the names in dropdown where it appears redundany of names but i need to display the names only once in dropdown and if the option in dropdown is choosen it should fetch the data regarding from database.

eg, if i choose the option himanshu in dropdown then the o/p should be as
3 himanshu
5 himanshu
8 himanshu.

how to code for this in php.

Just select those names (with group by or distinct), but don't use their id in the dropdown. Pass the name around instead.

SELECT DISTINCT ind_reg_name FROM ind_register ORDER BY ind_reg_name
