I'm looking to take the value from a drop down and use it to pre-poulate other fields based on the selection. The values and the drop down are all in the same dB table. I want to do this without reloading the screen.

I plan on doing a query and then outputing all of the info into js variables. Then when a selection is made (onChange) I'll retreive the variable that goes with that selection and write it to the correct field.

1) Is there a better way to achieve this
2) If not, then my real issue is populating all of the variables when the page loads for the first time. How do I do this? I can't put the code in the html page, because I can't use the CF in there.

Thanks in advance.

That is how I would do it today but available now are some AJAX methods that can do some behind the scenes functions to the server that don't give the appearnce of a posting back. Look up
