How does mysql_fetch_assoc store rows from a query?

I am using Dreamweaver's built in functionality to create a drop down list from a MySQL query.  The problem I have is that if I try to duplicate the list on the same page, only the first instance is filled with info from the query.  It may have something to do with the way "mysql_fetch_assoc" counts through the rows.  Can someone please explain how this works and how I can create multiple lists from the one query?  Thanks.
// The following is a couple snippets from my page:
 
mysql_select_db($database_gw2000Connect, $gw2000Connect);
$query_getAllNames = "SELECT * FROM users";
$getAllNames = mysql_query($query_getAllNames, $gw2000Connect) or die(mysql_error());
$row_getAllNames = mysql_fetch_assoc($getAllNames);
$totalRows_getAllNames = mysql_num_rows($getAllNames);
 
 
<select name="entryToApply">
  <?php do { ?>
  <option value="<?php echo $row_entriesToApply['invoiceNum']; ?>">
    <?php echo $row_entriesToApply['invoiceNum']; ?>
  </option>
  <?php } while ($row_entriesToApply = mysql_fetch_assoc($entriesToApply)); ?>
</select>

Try:
<?
 
mysql_select_db($database_gw2000Connect, $gw2000Connect);
$sql = "SELECT * FROM users";
$qry = mysql_query($sql);
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($qry)){
 
  // CREATE ARRAY WITH DATA
  $entries[] = $row_entriesToApply['invoiceNum'];
 
}
 
// FIRST SELECT
 
$select = "<select name='entryToApply'>";
foreach ($entries as $a){
  $select .= "<option value='$a'>$a</option>";
}
$select .= "</select>";
 
 
 
// SECOND SELECT
 
$select1 = "<select name='entryToApply2'>";
foreach ($entries as $b){
  $select1 .= "<option value='$b'>$b</option>";
}
$select1 .= "</select>";
 
 
/// and continue...
 
 
?>
