Default form submit problem

i have two list menus and one of them shows itself depending on the option selected on the first one. Then, I have another field not dependent and two text fields. The problem I have it is that I wanna submit the form to a another page so the contents could be inserted into a database and show some results as well. However, the page the form it is configured so it reloads itself in order for the dependent menus to work properly. If i change the form action it also affects the dropdown box making submit the form to that page. how can i submit the form to a different page but still have the dropdowns reload the same page?
any help I will greatly appreciate.

Here it's the code:

 <?php require_once('Connections/sin.php'); ?>
<?php
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
{
  $theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

  $theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

  switch ($theType) {
    case "text":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
      break;
    case "long":
    case "int":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
      break;
    case "double":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . doubleval($theValue) . "'" : "NULL";
      break;
    case "date":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
      break;
    case "defined":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
      break;
  }
  return $theValue;
}
}

$colname_subcat = "-1";
if (isset($_GET['category'])) {
  $colname_subcat = $_GET['category'];
}


if(isset($_GET["category"]) && is_numeric($_GET["category"]))
{
    $category = $_GET["category"];
}

if(isset($_GET["item"]) && is_numeric($_GET["item"]))
{
    $items = $_GET["item"];
}
mysql_select_db($database_sin, $sin);
$query_subcat = sprintf("SELECT `desc`, `id` FROM cats WHERE id = %s", GetSQLValueString($colname_subcat, "int"));
$subcat = mysql_query($query_subcat, $sin) or die(mysql_error());
$row_subcat = mysql_fetch_assoc($subcat);
$totalRows_subcat = mysql_num_rows($subcat);

mysql_select_db($database_sin, $sin);
$query_Vendor = "SELECT * FROM vendors ORDER BY name ASC";
$Vendor = mysql_query($query_Vendor, $sin) or die(mysql_error());
$row_Vendor = mysql_fetch_assoc($Vendor);
$totalRows_Vendor = mysql_num_rows($Vendor);
