Hi,

Here is the scenario, I want the user to choose the country from the list and once the user click on the country then the other option button will list down the state of the country selected by the user without click on the submit button.
It just like the sign up page in the hotmail.
I am using access to retrieve the country.
How to do this? And is it possible all this things done in the same page without have to link to other page?

Thanks in advance
Yzh

Will you display all the countries in the world or only a few and its states, we can choose  the best one depends on the requirement. Please let me know how many countries and states you will use...
