How can I incorporate this 2nd query into my edit page?

I have a JSP page that performs an update to records in my db2 table.  This page's record variables are populated with a query to my db2 table.  The thing is, I need to query from a second table, in order to populate a dynamic drop down list.

How can I incorporate this 2nd query into my edit page?

or is there something I'm missing?

ok, then give me an example of how to run two queries in the same edit form page.
In an edit page one must output the existing record variables for each text box, select box, etc. that is already in the record.
In the output of these in the form how do i break that output of variables and include the output of the 2nd query to the drop down list, as it is in the middle of the output of the variables of the 1st query?

load the queries into 2 different resultSets and then use them
That's what I what I would do

use one of the resultsets to fill in the text box, select box
and the other result set to load the drop down list

rs = statm.executeQuery(sqlQueryString);
rs2 = statm.executeQuery(sqlQueryString2);

if(rs.next()) {
int count =1;
do {
  out.println("record " + count + " value " + rs.getString(1));
  count++;
}while(rs.next());

you can do what you want with the results from the resultset
same idea for the rs2

if(rs2.next()) {
out.print("<select name='selectBox'>");
do {
  out.println("<option name='" + rs.getString(1) + "' value='" + rs.getString(1) + "' />";
}while(rs.next());
out.print("</select>");

hope that helps,
