    I am new to visual studio and need some help. I am creating a form webpage using this program and I have a question about how to manipulate the fields on the form. I have used the below code to connect to various tables on SQL. When opening the form in my browser it works fine. I can enter data in each field. The problem is that with certain fields I want them to be dropdown boxes. For example, with the Management Code field (below) I want this to be a dropdown box. The information I need for the dropdown box comes from the Fund Number table (Group) column. See the 2nd screen shot on the document I attached.

    How would I change the below code to change this particular field (Management Code) to a dropdown box? I have has used the dropdown list under toolbox but I can't get it to work so it will link to another form I created to review all submitted requests.

    Please keep in mind that the information entered in this field must also show up on other view forms I created.

    Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    tmpreqid = rs.Fields("Request ID").Value + 1

    rs.Open("Select * from Requests ", dbconn, ADODB.CursorTypeEnum.adOpenDynamic, ADODB.LockTypeEnum.adLockOptimistic)
