Hi, I have a simple form which has a 'select' element as follows: <select name='outbox' size='12'> <option value = 'option1'>option1</option> </select> I'm simply trying to pass the value of 'outbox' to another page as follows: <cfoutput>#form.outbox#</cfoutput> My action page can not see the variable 'form.outbox'? Any ideas? thanks........

    Because you don't have an option selected. Try adding "selected" to the option tag and then see if your action page can see the variable. Thanks.
