This is a follow-up to question http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/WebDevSoftware/ColdFusion/Q_21170271.html#12329284 .  

This is the form code with the query section.  When the user chooses the employee, I want the input "extension" to be automatically completed by taking that data from the query.

dbase field names in tbl_employees that are used: EmployeeID & SortName & Extension

<!-- BEGIN QUERY SECTION -->
<CFQUERY name="employees" datasource="mydns">
SELECT *
FROM tbl_employees
WHERE Active=1
ORDER BY SortName asc
</CFQUERY>
<!-- END QUERY SECTION -->

<!-- BEGIN Agent Trace Request Form -->
<CFFORM NAME="agttrace" ACTION="agt_trace-post.cfm" METHOD="POST">      
<table bgcolor="336699" width="95%" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2" border="0">
<tr>
<td class="smallsilver" align="right" valign="middle">
Employee:<span class="smallred">*</span>
</td>
<td>
<SELECT name="EmployeeID">
<OPTION value="">
<CFOUTPUT query="Employees">

</CFOUTPUT>
</SELECT>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>

As black0ps' previous code suggested, something like this may be correct:

<td>
<SELECT name="EmployeeID" onChange="document.agttrace.extension.value = this.options[this.selectedIndex].value">
<OPTION value="">
<CFOUTPUT query="Employees">
<OPTION value="#employeeid#">#SortName#
</CFOUTPUT>
</SELECT>
</td>

Whoops, thats incorrect.

Try this:

<td>
<SELECT name="EmployeeID" onChange="document.agttrace.extension.value = this.options[this.selectedIndex].value">
<OPTION value="">
<CFOUTPUT query="Employees">
<OPTION value="#extension#">#SortName#
</CFOUTPUT>
</SELECT>
</td>


The option value should be extension, not employeeID.

Your code looks fine. Add the following to the opening of your select tag:

 onChange="document.agttrace.extension.value = this.options[this.options.selectedIndex].value;"

black0ps, is it this.selectedIndex or this.options.selectedIndex?

Honestly not sure.

Okay...I used the code that umbrae posted and it functions properly.  When I choose a name, the extension field is populated with the corresponding number to that agent.  Looks good.  Thank you!

umbrae, I think it's either one. I didn't check my code with your when I posted. I just copied and pasted without really looking.
