the following is a for loop, i created a select box values show as

I would like it to be

1998
1997
1996
1995


what do I need to do to my code ?

$cbbYearArray = array("R","S","T","V","W","X","Y","1","2","3","4","5","6","7","8","9");
	$yearArray = array("1994","1995","1996","1997","1998","1999","2000","2001","2002","2003","2004","2005","2006","2007","2008","2009");
	
//	$startYearString = "<select name='autoYear' class=\"textboxesAutoInfo\" onchange=\"changeYear()\"><option value=''></option>";	
	$getCBByearsQueryStr = "SELECT DISTINCT(data2) FROM cbb ORDER BY data2";
//	echo $getCBByearsQueryStr;
	$getCBByearsQuery = mysql_query($getCBByearsQueryStr) or die();
	$the_strings = array();
	while($getCBByearsResult = mysql_fetch_object($getCBByearsQuery))
	{
		for($i=0; $i <=sizeof($cbbYearArray); $i++)
		{
			if($getCBByearsResult->data2 == $cbbYearArray[$i])
			{
				if($autoYear == $cbbYearArray[$i])
				{
					$the_strings[$i] = "<option value='" . $yearArray[$i] . $cbbYearArray[$i] . "' selected>" . $yearArray[$i] . "</option>" . chr(13);
				}
				else
				{
					$the_strings[$i] = "<option value='" . $yearArray[$i] . $cbbYearArray[$i] . "'>" . $yearArray[$i] . "</option>" . chr(13);
				}
				
			}
		}
	}
	$the_strings_sorted = array_unique ($the_strings) ;
	for ($i=0; $i <=sizeof($the_strings_sorted); $i++)
	{
		$cbbsStartYearString .= $the_strings_sorted[$i];
		$cbbeEndYearString .= $the_strings_sorted[$i];
	}

reverse your arrays

$cbbYearArray = array("R","S","T","V","W","X","Y","1","2","3","4","5","6","7","8","9");
 $yearArray = array("1994","1995","1996","1997","1998","1999","2000","2001","2002","2003","2004","2005","2006","2007","2008","2009");
            
            $yearArray = array_reverse($yearArray);
            
            $cbbYearArray  = array_reverse($cbbYearArray);

Im concentrating on the 2nd array, I thought it might be easier to reverse the for loop due to the sorting ???

You could do
for($i=count($cbbYearArray); $i  > 0; $i--)

From what i can see the values of 1st array are relates to the 2nd array so if you are going to reverse the array you have to reverse both of them.

small correction because the first index of an array is zero .

 for($i=count($cbbYearArray) -1 ; $i  >= 0; $i--)
