Please see attached php files; the first one (ajax_test.php) is supposed to take the name selected from the pulldown & look it up in a corresponding table on the web server. Try running it at www.rkassoc.org/FWLSCO/ajax_test.php
. It returns nothing (or if it does, I can't seem to detect how to see it).
Note I DO NOT want the result displayed directly on the page; I will use it for something else.
I suspected that the server program was at fault so I tried it directly using http://rkassoc.org/FWLSCO/getcustomer.php?q=BALCH/BRADY
(I know that name is in the database). It worked properly.
You may wonder why I am trying this; this is just to see if I can do it like this, the real application will be more complex.
