asp populate a dropdown list

229 100+
Hi, Anyone know how to populate a dropdown list with data from database.

I have an interface that generates the following code for names in my database.


Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. ..asp
  2. <%If Trim(rsCard("Author"))<>"" Then%> <%=rsCard("Author")%><%End If%>
  3. ..
How does one populate a dropdown list??
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Richard,

rsCard should contain a whole set of data, you should be able to scroll through them by saying rsCard.movenext, so the drop down select will look something like this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. response.write "<select>"
  2. do until rsCard.eof 'scroll through the whole list
  3.    response.write "<option>" & rsCard("Author") & "</option>" & vbNewLine
  4.    rsCard.movenext
  5. loop
  6. response.write "</select>"
Let me know if this helps.
