Frequency Drop Down ListFrequency Drop Down List with Item Selected
I have order form page with following select statement. Once the user selects the frequency (in this case, "Fill-In Order" and click [Order Preview] page, it shows the selected Frequency in drop-down menu format, but it fails to list all other choices. I like to be able display what the user selected plus the rest of the options from the table so that users can still make the change if they change their mind in Order Preview page.

--- OrderForm.cfm ---
<CFFORM  ACTION="PreviewOrder.cfm">
          <SELECT NAME="Frequency1">
                    <OPTION VALUE="0"></OPTION>
                  <CFOUTPUT query="GetFrequency">
                  <OPTION VALUE="#ID#">#Frequency#</OPTION>
                  </CFOUTPUT>
       </SELECT>

--- PreviewOrder.cfm ---

           <CFQUERY NAME="GetFrequency" datasource="Order">
                 SELECT      *
                    FROM         Frequency
               WHERE   ID = #Form.Frequency1#
            </CFQUERY>
            <CFSELECT NAME="Frequency1"
                   query="GetFrequency"
                   selected="#GetFrequency.ID#"
                   VALUE ="ID" DISPLAY="Frequency">
            </CFSELECT>
