    Greetings, board posters! <BR><BR>I&#039;m a newbie to ASP and I need a shove in the right direction.<BR><BR>I&#039;m building a form using a series of dependent drop down lists whoses contents are extracted from a very large database. According to the article at http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/061399-1.shtml#2a the easiest way to implement multiple dynamic drop down lists is for "ASP to send a complete replacement for the current page" and is "truly trivial" to implement.<BR><BR>I, being the newbie I am, have not been able to make the big leap necessary to see how truly trivial this is. Could someone please tell me where there&#039;s a good reference for me to learn about this truly trivial method? I&#039;m looking forward to slapping myself on the forehead on this one.<BR><BR>Thanks,<BR><BR>-Barry<BR><BR>

    Default I have an example...

    ...on my site at http://www.ClearviewDesign.com/NEWBIE<BR><BR>Look for the "categories" demo with the multiple drop downs.<BR><BR>"Trivial" might be too strong a term. You *do* have to be able to detect why the page is being invoked, and that&#039;s not something I&#039;d expect a newbie to know right off.<BR><BR>

    Thank you, Bill. I was able to follow your example, understand the principle, and adapt it to my needs. You were very helpful.<BR><BR>-Barry<BR><BR><BR>
