Im using the following function to pull records for a dropdown. The dropdown is working however the results are not what I am looking for.

I cant get the NOT IN to work below its just displaying all the records in "$strTableName " and not removing the matching field "onetimeID" in the picksummary table..

Any advice would be greatfull.


function OneTimedropdown($intIdField, $strNameField, $strTableName, $strNameOrdinal, $strOrderField, $userID, $strMethod="asc") {
   echo "<select name=\"$strNameOrdinal\">\n";
   echo "<option value=\"NULL\">".$strMaskName."</option>\n";
   $strQuery = "select $intIdField, $strNameField
            from $strTableName
                 WHERE $strNameField NOT IN (select onetimeID FROM nflp_picksummary where userID = '" . $user->userID . "')";
   $rsrcResult = mysql_query($strQuery);

   while($arrayRow = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsrcResult)) {
      $strA = $arrayRow["$intIdField"];
      $strB = $arrayRow["$strNameField"];
      echo "<option value=\"$strA\">$strB</option>\n";

   echo "</select>";
