Hi Experts!

If a combo starts with a marked option how to make the selected option code (sb_cccx in the example) to assume the initial value correspondent to the option selected despite the fact the user access the combo or not?

                 CC/ Cx:
                 <select name="sb_cccx">
                 <option value="<?php echo $d_cccx;?>" selected> <?php  echo $d_cccx;?></option>   

    //----------Inicio Combo 1 (CCCX) -----------------------------------------------------------------
    $sql = mysql_query("select sb_cccx, cx_info, substr(descricao,1,25) as descricao from cccx where ativa=1 order by descricao");
    //----------Final Combo 1-------------------------------------------------------------------------

    while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($sql)) {
        $id = $row['sb_cccx'];
        $data = $row['descricao'];
        echo '<option value="' . $id . '">' . $data . '</option>';
