On page1 I have a form with a drop down box to select the state you live in. When you submit, it goes to page2 and this page validates the form info. When there is a problem it returns to page1 and with all the values in a querystring, fills in the fields with the info they typed in. <BR><BR>My problem is that the drop downbox doesn't go back to the state they selected. It resets back to the first option. I've taken out the SELECTED and have verified that the querystring is returning the proper value for the state. I just don't know why it doesn't display the chosen value. <BR><BR>My code reads:<BR><SELECT NAME="state" value="<%=request("state")%>"><BR>< BR>Please help!
