i have two drop downs on an ASP .on selecting an option from the first, the corresponding data has to be pulled in from the DB and displayed in the second drop down. I have been trying to find out if theres a way to do this without using XMLHTTP, submit or remote scripting? Any help would be highly appreciated.

Hi arvindsha,

Your best bet is probably client-side Javascript arrays loaded from DB by ASP.  For an example of the JS arrays, see the post by Fritz the Blank in:

You will need to add the DB part.
