Here is what I have and how it should work.
1) There is a select box with various options such as Institution, Students, etc. When I click on Institution, AJAX will will generate a new select box to the right that will have a list of institutions pulled from a database (they same goes for students). This part works beautifully.
2) When a list of institutions of students is generate I should be able to click on that particular institution or student and generate yet another select box based on the institution/student id's pulled from the database.
