Coldfusion Drop Down Dilema

I have a coldfusion form that is acting a little 'funny'.

I have textboxes and drop downs that work fine howerver, I just put in a new drop down and it will not refresh to it's selected item when the user updates the form.

It's just a simple select box and the code looks the same as another textbox that is working correctly.

Can somone offer any advice on how to fix this?

The new drop down does work but I have to manually click the browsers refresh button.

Obviously that isn't what is needed and I need to find a way to have it select it's item upon sending the form.

=========  the code ===================================

    <cfquery name="qPrimarySite" datasource="#application.mydsn#">
         SELECT ID, Primary_Site FROM List_PrimarySite ORDER BY ID
     <select name="selPrimarySite" title="PrimarySite">
     <cfloop query="qPrimarySite">
        <option value="#ID#" <cfif #ID# eq "#PrimarySiteID#">SELECTED</cfif>>#Primary_Site#</option>
