I have chosen a thing called set in MySQL. I thought it was supposed to be used when you have like a couple of alternatives to chose between. So I did put some of them in my database and then using Dreamweaver to code the stuff in php.
I have a dropdown menu to show the alternatives, but it doesn't work at all. Nothing is shown in the menu at all.
So, I made one link to another table to pick like usernames from the other table and that one works.
Isn't SET the thing I would use to list like 3 alternatives in a form?

This is the code that doesn't work.

HTML Code:
<option value="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['places']?>" <?php if (!(strcmp($row_Recordset1['places'], $row_Recordset1['places']))) {echo "SELECTED";} ?>><?php echo $row_Recordset1['places']?></option>
Oh sorry... got to tell you that I'm a newbie.
