Submit from list

I have a loop query that I need to submit the value from the selected value.
For example if the query comes back with 20 rows of information and I select the 5 row. it always gives me the result from the first row. How can I get it to supply the customer_no for the the one I selected?
<table border=0>
      <cfloop query="getSupplies">
                  <td height="24"><input name="customer_no" value="Continue" type="submit">#getSupplies.customer_no# - #getSupplies.ship_to# - #getSupplies.scity# - #getSupplies.sstate#</a></td>
            <input type=hidden name="customer_no" value="#getSupplies.customer_no#">

use javascript to assign the value of the selected button before submitting
<table border="0">
<cfloop query="getSupplies">
	<td height="24">
	   <input name="customer_no" value="Continue" type="submit" onClick="documents.getElementById('custNo').value='#getSupplies.customer_no#'">
       #getSupplies.customer_no# - #getSupplies.ship_to# - #getSupplies.scity# - #getSupplies.sstate#
<input type="hidden" id="custNo" name="customer_no" value="">

notice there is only one customer_no field, a hidden one, outside of the loop

when you click the submit, the value gets assigned into that field and submitted
