Problem with DropDown and ASP

Hi everybody,

I am getting infos from a database to get a drop down list filled. When I submit the form I want to automatically select the selected item but it doesn't select. Heres my code where it doesn't work.

<% Do While not rsCountries.EOF %>
" <% if Request.Form("ddlSearchCountry") = rsCountries("CountryID") then %> selected <% end if %>>
<% = rsCountries("Country") %>

<% rsCountries.MoveNext

I've done this tones of time but this time it just won't work. The Request.Form works because i checked if it gets filled by putting it beside <% = rsCountries("Country") %>.

Thank you in advance,



  • Hi everybody,

    My Values are numeric. what I did was to convert my Request.Form and recordset values both to Int and then it worked.

    <% Do While not rsCountries.EOF %>
    " <% if cint(DistributorCountryID) = cint(rsCountries("CountryID")) then%>selected<%end if%>><% = rsCountries("Country") %>
    <% rsCountries.MoveNext
