Good day all.

I have a web form I have created. I have a field that requires the user to enter the ACNA (Access Carrier Name Abbreviation - telcom) and then the corresponding Customer name in the next text box.
I have both the ACNA and the corresponding Customer name in an Access Database (EAST_pm) and table (tblMasterACNA).

I would like to create a drop-down list for the ACNA, based on the field ACNA in tblMasterACNA. Once the user selects the ACNA the next text box would be populated automatically with the corresponding Customer Name in the Customer field from the tblMasterACNA.

I am using ASP, SQL and some Javascript on my site.
I have posted my code and has you can see, I am using a FIELDSET, not sure if that will matter.
This form is sent back to another table within the same database.

Thanks for your assist..

Here's what I use when I run into this requirement.  It's a combination of VBScript and JavaScript and it works very well, in my experience.

Not sure if this would wor or I should say not sure if I know how to modify it so it will work. As I said my requirement is that the specific ACNA field is tied to a specific customer name so there would not be a need to have a drop down.

suggestions?
