I am a bit new to PHP and SQL so this may seem like a dumb question.
I have already created a drop down list as part of a form which is
automatically populated with values taken from a separate database. When a
user goes onto this page and either leaves the default value or selects a
value from the drop down list and presses the submit button, I would like
that selected value to be stored into a database which I have already
created in SQL.
Just to let you know that I can do the above using a text field but just
don't know how to do it with drop down list.
If your going to explain any coding then it may help if I give you the names
of certain items that are involved.
Database is called "Company"
Field within database is called "Name"
Drop down list is called "company"
Re: How do you insert a value from drop down list to SQL table?
Submit your form to a simple testpage which contains the following:
or - depending on your php version -
You should now see exactly what is being submitted by your form (and
how) which should tell you how you can reference the value you want to
put into your database.
