In the CFSELECT tag, First I am using a sybase query and then I use OPTION value. The OPTION value is always in botton in the drop-down list box. But my requirement is that OPTION value should be top of drop-down list box.

Could you some help me how to show up a Option value (The hardcoded one "ALL") at top?

Thanks in advance.

Pls have a look at the below code :


<CFQUERY NAME="SelAcct" DATASOURCE="#CSybDataSource#" USERNAME=#CSybUsername# PASSWORD=#CSybPassword#>
SELECT      distinct cUprFSACode
FROM     tblFSAAcctNameJa
ORDER BY cUprFSACode
</CFQUERY>

<CFQUERY NAME="SelDBFN" DATASOURCE="#CSybDataSource#" USERNAME=#CSybUsername# PASSWORD=#CSybPassword#>
SELECT      distinct cDBFN
FROM     tblDBFN
where cDBFN != ' '
order by cDBFN desc
</CFQUERY>

Intead of

<CFSELECT NAME="AcctList"
                       QUERY="SelAcct"
                                              REQUIRED="yes"
                       SIZE="1">
                 
</CFSELECT>

Do this.(It should work...)

<cfoutput>
<CFSELECT name="droplist1" value="ALL">
<CFLOOP query="SelAcct">
   <OPTION VALUE="#cUprFSACode#" DISPLAY="#cUprFSACode#">
</cfloop>
</CFSELECT>
</cfoutput>

Hope this helps..

Sincerely,

Racimo
