Hey J-in-uk,

The only way to have the PHP alter the value is to make the "onChange" equal submit() [onChange='submit()'] and then process the value using PHP and alter the other elements of the form.


PS You would need to enclose the <SELECT> in <FORM>

Do not create multiple topics with the same question. All replies need to go in the thread that raf has listed which is your original thread.
