ok, i have the below dropdown box. works fine. i'm storing the id value, but i also want to get the description that is displayed in the dropdown. for example, i might have the following valus in my table:
when this dropdown displays, it shows "description1" in the dropdown, but i need to store the id for other purposes. how can i also store the "description1" in some form of hidden form input that will allow me to submit this value to another form?
<select name="drpProgramAreaID" onchange="this.form.submit()">
<option value = "">Select Program Area</option>
<cfif form.drpProgramAreaID eq "#qryGetProgramArea.PROGRAM_AREA_ID#">
