I know this is probably a stupid question but here goes anyways!

I am using dreamweaver to create a drop down menu and I want to know if there is a way of importing a large list instead of having to do one value/label at a time.

Sites like that have better menus than DW creates, but there is nothing wrong with spending the time, if you want.

OK....sorry if I confused you. I was talking about drop down combo boxes. DW calls them menus for some reason. I have a huge list of values and labels and don't want to have to enter them one at a time.

Oh that's totally different!

Make a text table using one <option> ...etc as a template, copy it 100 times, one per line,  replace the data in each, save it in Notepad, and when done, just paste it into the source code window of DW.  That's about the best you can do. And you can always go back to the notepad file to make changes, quicker than in DW.

Borrow from somebody else's HTML, like with country lists etc. Best way me thinks :)
