How do I fetch data from table into dropdown menu in mysql and post back to another table? What I want is to create a registration form for customers and attach an agent to each customer, the agent names are stored in a table and i need to post agent name back when am sumitting the customers details.

see code below.

<?php


if(isset($_POST['submit'])){
 $agent_dat1=$_POST['Company_Name'];
 $agent_dat2=$_POST['First_Name'];
 $agent_dat3=$_POST['Other_Name'];
 $agent_dat4=$_POST['Software'];
 $agent_dat5=$_POST['Version'];
 $agent_dat6=$_POST['Agent'];
 $agent_dat7=$_POST['City'];
 $agent_dat8=$_POST['State'];
 $agent_dat9=$_POST['Agent_Email'];
 $agent_dat10=$_POST['Agent_Phone'];




 $insert= "INSERT INTO `capdata`.`agent`(`Company_Name`,`First_Name`,`Other_Name`,`Software`,`Version`,`Agent`,`City`,`State`,`Agent_Email`,`Agent_Phone`) VALUES ('$agent_dat1','$agent_dat2','$agent_dat3','$agent_dat4','$agent_dat5','$agent_dat6','$agent_dat7','$agent_dat8','$agent_dat9','$agent_dat10');";

 $result = mysql_query($insert, $connection);
 // execute the SQL statement
 if ($result) {
 echo "Congratulations <b> $_POST[Company_Name] </b> your Registration is successful!";
 } else {
 echo "Sorry! User Registration Fail";
 }
}



 ?>

Please i would appreciate a little help here.

Hi, let me understand: do you want an autocomplete function over an input text field? Or a select dropdown? Also, can you show the form?

You have to use the foreach statement to populate the form via autocomplete. Eg:

<?php
                    foreach ($stocks as $symbol)
                    {
                        printf("<option value='$symbol'>" . $symbol . "</option>");
                    }
                ?>

Presuming this is the connect-mysql.php

<?php

DEFINE ('DB_HOST', 'ip');
DEFINE ('DB_USER', 'user');
DEFINE ('DB_PSWD', 'pass');
DEFINE ('DB_NAME', 'dbname');

$dbcon = mysqli_connect(DB_HOST, DB_USER, DB_PSWD, DB_NAME);

if (!$dbcon) {
    die('error connecting to database');
    }

?>

and this is the samepage.php

<form method="post" action="samepage.php">

<select size="1" name="whatever">
<?php
include('pathtoconnection/connect-mysql.php');

$sql3="SELECT * FROM table";
$results = mysqli_query($dbcon,$sql3) or die('123');

while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($results)) {

      echo '<option value="'.$row['rowname'].'">'.htmlspecialchars($row['rowname']).'</option>'; 
  }                         
?>
                    </select>
<input type="submit" value="Insert Info"></p>
<input type="hidden" name="submitted" value="true" />
</form>


<?php

if (isset($_POST['submitted'])) {
include('pathtoconnection/connect-mysql.php');

    $whatever= mysqli_real_escape_string($dbcon, $_POST['whatever']);

    $sqlinsert = "INSERT INTO table2 (whatever) VALUES ('$whatever')";


    if (!mysqli_query($dbcon, $sqlinsert)) {
        die('error inserting new record');
        }//end of nested if statement
$newrecord = "Entry Successful";

} //end of main if
?>

<?php
echo $newrecord // New record added statement added at the top
?>

you can do that with multiple drop menus. UPDATING is slightly a different story but this would at least let you insert new records.
