I have a drop down list object on one of my web pages - when I Post to my .php file, how do I move through the list to find the selected item? I'm trying to sequence through all the <Select Tag items so I can write them to a table - the selected item I will actually skip because this task is to delete the selected item from the drop down list.

Thanks for any help...

the browser will only sent back a single value to the server; the value wich was selected. all other values will not be sent back to the server.
So you don't have to walk through those values.

simply use this variable:

print($_POST['name_of_select_box']);

to print out the value returned.
