Use and if sentence for that pulldown menu.

If (pulldown=something)
else if (pulldown=something else)

ok, here's the problem... I have nine selections, with values from 1 to 9 we'll say, and I need to put all of this in a single variable.  I'm sorry for not saying that earlier.

OK, I guess the real question is, "How do I get the value of a pulldown menu option?"
