Hi guys,

I'm developing a very short application for my intranet, on the form, I'm using "lastname", "secondlastname", "firstname" and "birthday" in this same order and below there's a list/menu box.

So, what I need, is that after a user enter the last name, I need to search on the data base for all records that match with lastname, then display them in the list/menu control.

Please help!

Thank you guys.

Here's my code:

<? 
session_start();
?>
<HTML>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
.style2 {font-size: 10px}
.style3 {
	color: #0000FF;
	font-weight: bold;
	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 18px;
}
.style6 {font-size: 18px; }
.style7 {font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif}
.style8 {
	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 18px;
	color: #006600;
}
.style10 {font-size: xx-small; }
.style11 {font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 24px; }
.style13 {color: #0000FF}
-->
</style>
<BODY bgcolor="#E6E6E6">
<table width="91%" border="1" align="center">
