Hey everyone, I decided to do a lot of echos to make a letter for different selections based off the user. Everything works well except that when the user selects one of the options, two different letters are shown on the page and it's only for one of the options. Would anyone know why this would be the case?

function greeting()
{
    echo $GLOBALS['Date'];
    echo "<br><br> Name: ". $GLOBALS['FirstName']. " ". $GLOBALS['LastName'];
    echo "<br> Address: ". $GLOBALS['Address']. ", ". $GLOBALS['City']. ", ". $GLOBALS['State']. " ". $GLOBALS['Zip'];
    echo "<br><br> RE: Account# ". $GLOBALS['AccountNumber'];
    echo "<br><br> Dear ". $GLOBALS['Gender']. " ". $GLOBALS['LastName']. ",";
    echo "<br><br> Thank you for choosing Company, a leader in Internet, data, voice and video services. As the";

    echo "<br> Company";
}

function dedicated()
{       
    //The contents of the letter
    echo $GLOBALS['Date'];
    echo "<br><br> Name: ". $GLOBALS['FirstName']. " ". $GLOBALS['LastName'];
    echo "<br> Address: ". $GLOBALS['Address']. ", ". $GLOBALS['City']. ", ". $GLOBALS['State']. " ". $GLOBALS['Zip'];

    echo "<br> Sales Engineer";
    echo "<br> Company";
}

//Depending on what button was pressed on the last page

//or to email the sales engineer and update the ticket.
if(isset($_POST['previewLetter']))
{
    if(isset($_POST['letter']))
    {

        if($_POST['letter'] == "greetingDedicated")
        {
            dedicated();
        }
        else if($_POST['letter'] == 'greetingCable');
        {
            greeting();
        }       
    }
}

Pretty much, you can look at the last 10+ lines of code. Those are where the calls to the fucntions are on and I don't know why one of the functions gets called all the time no matter what.

Now, only one function is being called all the time and I don't know why. I'll give the conditions for the function to be called.

if(isset($_POST['previewLetter']))
{
    if(isset($_POST['letter']))
    {

        if($_POST['letter'] == 'greetingDedicated')
        {
            dedicated();
        }
        if($_POST['letter'] == 'greetingCable');
        {
            greeting();
        }
    }
}

From the previous page for my php files, I have these options that the user can choose from

<select type="text" name="letter">
                <option name="LetterList">Drop down list</option>
                <option name="greetingDedicated">Sales Greeting Dedicated</option>
                <option name="greetingCable">Sales Greeting Cable</option>
                <option name="installSite">Service Installation For Site</option>
            </select>

Would you happen to know why the greeting() function is always being called?
