    Hi,
    Please forgive my ignorance.
    I only have a basic knowledge of building web pages.
    I have a bit of experience coding in visual basic with Microsoft Access.

    I'm just not sure where to start with this one due to lack of experience. Not sure which method or language to do it. ASP? PHP? XML?

    I want to have a form that the User selects values form a series of list boxes. Then using the choices from each list do something along the lines of an IF statement or Case statement to determine the corresponding part number that matches the criteria. There could be up to 30
    different part numbers!

    IF ListA value = 1 and ListB value = 3 THEN

    Part Number = 0002-00016-TIS

    Then email an enquiry about the part number.

    What would be the best method to do this?

    You could do this several ways ...

    Using PHP to do the final crunching and sending the email,

    But on the page with the form, you could use Javascripting to
    help the user move through their selections. Using Javascripting to
    assist them, but don't make javascripting a requirement.

    Example, if they select an item, the next select box will automatically
    display a certain item pertaining to the first selection ... something like that.

    You should get a form created on a webpage and give us a link to it.
    That would help us understand your question better.

    So, you are only ever going to be checking 2 part numbers at once? Or could you have to check multiple, such as upto 30?

    By the sounds of it, your logic is going to be extensive whichever way you do it.

    .NET or PHP

    Since you're already familiar with VB ... maybe .NET is the best way for you? PHP is pretty easy to figure out as well .. so ... you get to choose. Check which your host supports.

    Thanks for the replies!
    I think I'll go with asp.net. Anyone know of any examples that might be similar to what I'm trying to do?
