asking the question here! (and also crossposting)
Can someone tell me if it is possible to have an HTML select statement that
gets its options from a text file.
<option value="">Select Contract</option> |
<option value="RS-330">RS-330 Northern</option> | these
bits should come fron an external file
<option value="RS-331">RS-331 Southern</option> |
Re: HTML Select statement option list
so will be unreliable and only work in some instances of MSIE and Mozilla
(and you'll need different techniques for each of them).
You would be much better of generating it using some server side tool. If
you are using forms then you should have the capability to run such a tool
already. The specifics depend on the server platform.
