I using the code below and the dropdown menu works fine for the database populated dropdown list.  What I want if when I click Add it creates the database populated list again.  If I move the asp script into the line item(0).childNodes[1].innerHTML = "<SELECT SIZE=1 NAME=phone" + ind + "></SELECT>" and remove all the " for ' nothing happens.  Can someone help?

<%
Dim cnOsmitDatabase
%>
<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
function addRow(tbl){
 var tb = tbl.firstChild;
 var ind = tb.childNodes.length;
 var nr = document.getElementById('cloneThis').cloneNode(true);
 nr.style.display = "block";
 with(nr.firstChild.firstChild.firstChild.childNodes){
   item(0).childNodes[1].innerHTML = "<SELECT SIZE=1 NAME=phone" + ind + "></SELECT>"
 }
 tb.appendChild(nr);
 if (tbl.rows.length > 1) {
   document.getElementById('delRow').disabled = false;
 }
 document.forms[0].count.value = ind + 1;
}

function deletRow(tbl){
  if (tbl.rows.length > 1) {
    tblRow = tbl.deleteRow(tbl.rows.length-1);
    //           alert(tbl.rows.length);
  }
}
function disablit(tbl){
  if(tbl.rows.length == 1) {
    document.getElementById('delRow').disabled = true;
  }
}
</script>

Why do you need to recreate it? If you want to change the name of the select, use this function:

function addRow(tbl){
 var tb = tbl.firstChild;
 var ind = tb.childNodes.length;
 var nr = document.getElementById('cloneThis').cloneNode(true);
 nr.style.display = "block";
 with(nr.firstChild.firstChild.firstChild.firstChild.childNodes[1].firstChild){
   id="phone"+ind;
   name="phone"+ind;
 }
 tb.appendChild(nr);
 if (tbl.rows.length > 1) {
   document.getElementById('delRow').disabled = false;
 }
 document.forms[0].count.value = ind + 1;
}
