I generated a variable by means of a select statement in a form.
HTML Code:
    <label for="outcome">How do you want to move the needle?</label>
    <select class="medium" name="outcome" size="1" id="outcome">
        <option value="revenue" selected="selected">Increased revenue</option>
        <option value="cost">Reduce costs</option>
        <option value="customer">Customer satisfaction</option>
        <option value="other">Other  Details below</option>
    </select>
In the action script, I captured the variable in
PHP Code:
  $outcome $_POST['outcome']; 
Now I want to display various information depending on the value of 'outcome'. I have tried
PHP Code:
if ($outcome=="revenue"
    {
    
?>
        <p>Information about revenue.</p>
    } 
which doesn't work. What am I missing?
