OK, I have gotten the data I need in the string but I can't get it to show properly in the link. I didn't understand the last section where I would do that. Here's what I've done, I'm not sure if I'm close to correct since it strays away from your initial code a little bit.
Here's the current code I have for the string:
<option value="<%=name & id%>"><%=name%></option>
Which brings me back this:
All I need is the &ID=5864 to be there and it will be good but I didn't understand where that code went to accomplish that??
