    Unhappy Select option base from the database

    whats the right codes using the select option that the choices came from the database. In my database i have a table name loan which has a acctNo.
    The problem is i want to make the select options that the choices came from the database.
    and i made this but i know this is not right.

    View All Loan in <select name = "AcctNos"><option><?php Select * acctNo from loans ?></option></select>

    Any Suggestion please.. I need it As soon as possible. Thanks

    Specifics depend on what database extension your are using.

    General idea is to either execute the query, the within a while() loop read each result row via the applicable "fetch" function for the DB extension in question and output the results within <option> tags; or with some DB extensions it's easy to fetch all the results into one PHP array, then do a foreach() loop on that array.
