Hey guys -

I'm trying to use a drop-down menu to allow a user select a value for submission along with some text-input fields. I have a submit_tag handling the submission.

I can't figure out what's wrong with this syntax:

Code:
<td width = 275px, align = "center">
		<select name= "status" >
			<option value="option1">Option 1</option>
			<option value="option2">Option 2</option>
			<option value="option3">Option 3</option>
		</select>
		
	</td>

I have "validates_presence_of :status" in my project model, which seems to be doing its job because the page just refreshes when I submit. Without the validation, it claims status is nil.

Thanks for your time!
