Telephone:<br><input type="text" size=40 name="TELEPHONE" value= "<?php echo $phone; ?>"><br>

what i would like to know is how would i do that for an option box, here is an example of one of my option boxes if that is what they are called:-

<SELECT NAME = "HOUSE" multiple><OPTION VALUE="Terrace"  > Terrace<OPTION VALUE="Semi-Detached"> Semi-Detached<OPTION VALUE="Detached"> Detached</SELECT>

The most simple technique looks like this:<option value="Terrace" <?php if ($_POST['HOUSE'] == 'Terrace') {echo 'selected="selected"';} ?>>Terrace</option>This will work, and if you only have a few tags, it will be okay. If you have many tags, you might want to automate the system with loops and arrays.
