Hi, I have a list menu that pulls up values from the db. Once I choose the subscriber id from the list I execute a query to pull up some date pertaining to this customer. I need the result of the query to be displayed on the same page. Can someone let me know how this can be done. Thank you

Thank you. Is there anything in Jquery that can be used to do this? Just curious.

Yes, but I don't know it.  You can click on "Request Attention" and get the jQery zone added to your question.  If it is just for this, I wouldn't recommend jQuery because it adds a lot to the page load.  If you're already using it then it doesn't matter.

I usually agree with everything DaveBaldwin writes, but in this case I am going to disagree, just a little.  I use jQuery occasionally.  It implements the good parts of javaScript.  I do not find that it adds a lot to the page load.  I use the "minified" latest version, and have never found that it slowed the page load in a way that was perceptible.  You can use YSlow (Google that) to test this for yourself.

I use the jQuery file here: http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js

Today it is at version 1.7.2 and is about 94K.  That's less "weight" than a lot of web images.  When you consider what it does for you, it's a pretty good trade-off.

best of luck with your project, ~Ray
