Code:
var postOptions = document.getElementById("post"+t);    
postOptions.options[0].selected = 1;

Hi Picco,

Your solution will only work if your select element has the first option selected by default and does not allow multiple items to be selected.

You could use myFormName.reset() to reset the form to it's initial state, or if you don't want to reset the whole form, store the selected value in a variable and use this to select the appropriate option(s) when required.

HTH,

Chris
