hi...
im retriving data from database:
...
while ($row=mysql_fetch_object($result)){
<tr><td>
<select name="priority">
<option value="1">Top</option>
<option value="2">Middle</option>
<option value="3">Bottom</option>
</select>
}


<td><?echo $row->name;?></td></tr>

that's gives me a list with names and a select list for each name.
in the next page i want to retrive the data like that:
item 1 : select list result : 1
item 2 : select list result : 3
item 3 : select list result : 2
item 4 : select list result : 1
...
this is a problem since the select name="priority" is common to all records.
how can i do this?

Try using
<select name="priority[<?php echo $row->name;?>]">
to distinguish between rows ...

so on the result page you'll have associative array $priority
with keys - names.

Or, if there is id for each name, use this:
<select name="priority[<?php echo $row->id;?>]">

Assuming that you've chosed the last variant of select:

while ( list($id, $val) = each( $priority) )
{
     print "Name_ID: $id<BR>\n";
     print "VALUE: $val<BR>\n";
}

It is your position to raise points or not ;-)

i am trying to combine all this to " insert into "  database.
the database is not update how ever i dont have any errors.
BTW - im getting the name_id and the $val o.k.

while ( list($id, $val) = each( $priority) )
                    {       
$sql="insert into reported_mutation priority values($val) where id='$id'";
                                    $result=mysql_db_query("appscan",$sql);
                        #that's works good: print "Name_ID: $id<BR>\n";
                        #that's works good: print "VALUE: $val<BR>\n";
                    }
