Default Dynamic List in UPDATE page

ASP VBSCRIPT / SQL Server 2005 / Dreamweaver CS3

We have an update page with an Dynamic List with the option for multi-selections allowed. The field is populated from a recordset. I want to highlight the options already selected. For example:

say the recordset has the following options:
- one
- two
- three

and two and htree are already in the database: two, three

How can i populate the list with two and three already highlightd (selected)?

you would need to loop through your recordset and see what values are selected by some sort of if statement logic....when you find a match the property you need to set for the option tag is called selected....you would add code like so:

<option value="one" selected="selected">one</option>
