Default Retrieve value from <select>

Hi everybody, I'm looking for a solution for my problem: I want to take the values from some dropdownlist and add them to a variable, this variable will be used to find an specific file in a directory.

I used asp connection to bring to the dropdownlist some values from a database but I need to catch it in some variable and some others values entered by the user too.

If you like to check my page is:
Those values on the dropdownlists I wanted to catch...

1..Why so many forms on the one page? You only need one, the tag should be something like:
<form name="someName" action="pageNameToPostValuesTo.asp" method="post">

2..You dont need name="radio" in each of your <option> tags. The <Select Name="radioselect"> is all you need to name. When your form gets submitted the chosen value will be held in:
<%= request.form("radioselect") %>

3..The remaining values will be held in the named request object of each of your elements 'once the form is submitted'
