Where is the javascript function attached to the select box?

This could be why it is not working.

Please post that code.

You page is not setup to respond to url variables because all of the references are looking only in the form scope. To make your url reference work, you will need to convert url variables into the form scope automatically.

Also, this will only work if the form scope is empty (ie: if there isn't any form information being submitted.

Try putting this code at the top of your page. Let me know how you made out.

 
<cfif structisempty(form)  > <cfset form = url /> </cfif>

<cfset form = url />


What's interesting about that code is it doesn't actually overwrite the FORM scope. It creates a local variable referencing URL scope ie #variables.FORM#. The system FORM scope is left intact. To avoid subtle bugs, it's safer to copy the values from one scope to the other imo. Especially as structures are already passed by reference.

<!--- warning, this will overwrite any values in the FORM scope with the same name --->
<cfloop collection="#URL#" item="key">
        <cfset FORM[key] = URL[key]>
</cfloop>
