Hi Friends... I have a list:

<select name="Codigos" id="Codigos" >
<option value="1">En Transito</option>
<option value="2">Afianzando</option>
<option value="3">Habitual</option>
<option value="4" >Preferente</option>
</select>


I need the list to be positioned at a certain value that I get from a database, for example, suppose the value obtained is 3, then the list must be positioned at "Habitual"

Can anybody help me?
Thanks
