    Hi

    i have the following dropdown menu in my form. This dropdown is duplicated (name is changed for each) through my form for each day which a conference is attended.

    the problem is, that the various drop down "labels" are not displaying with the relevant selections made.

    _______________________________

    If I select "Menu 2" - then the form displays "Menu 1", with a value of "80". The "dropdown label" only changes when I select an option with a different value, such as "Menu 16, value: "120"

    If I am not explaining correctly, the form can be viewed here:

    You can't have the same value for the various options. It makes it so things don't work because the script is only looking at values and they are all the same.

    Thank you David - I thought that may be the problem. Do you perhaps have any suggestions on another way which the user can select a menu? Would this same issue apply to radio buttons?

    Please can you point me in the direction of a better solution for this?

    Thank you so much

    Kind Regards
