    Automatic code duplicater

    I want to make a simple code that will build a table rows, queries and selectboxes for me.

    Here's an example of what I want to do :

    (on the same row) A selectbox, with options fetched from a sql database. When the user chooses an option, the page refreshes and besides the selectbox, we see a desc. of what the user chose. Besides the description, there's other information fetched from the database.

    I can do it for one, without much problem.
    Here's the tricky part... The php will be a archiving system for order forms. We will fill this form to duplicate real orders. The selectbox is a "product-chooser", if the customer bought custom notepads, you choose that from the selectbox. But he might have bought something else as well...

    That's why I want to duplicate the code. There will be multiple rows in order to choose multiple products. And I don't want to write it all, it would be much easier to look through 50 lines of code instead of 300 and more...

    I want to be able to set the number of times the php will make the table.

    But if I do this, all the selectboxes will have the same name and the $var will too... so that's no good. I want the code to add a distinctive number at the end of the $vars... I think you all get it...

    Here's a code that someone suggested me, but it doesn't quite work... at all.
    If I could get that example to work, I would be more than happy... been working on that for 2 weeks now...
    Code:
    $query=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM qg_clients"); 
    while($row=mysql_fetch_array ($query)){
     
    $holdarray=$row['name']; 
    } 
     
    for($enum=1 ; $enum<5 ; $enum++){
     
    echo '<select name="name'.$enum.'">'; 
    
    foreach($holdarray as $val){
     
    echo '<option value="'.$val.'">'.$val.'</option>'; 
    } 
    echo "</select>"; 
    }
    If there's any other way I could do this, Im open to suggestions.
    Sorry for the long story, but I want to be sure that everyone gets my concept...

    PHP Code:
    <select name="BuyWhat[]">
    <?
    $query=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM qg_clients"); 
    while($row=mysql_fetch_array ($query)){
    $holdarray[]=$row['name']; 
    };
    foreach($holdarray as $val){
    echo '<option value="'.$val.'">'.$val.'</option>'; 
    };
    ?>
    </select>
    <input type=submit value="Order">
    </form>
    <?
    if(isset($_POST['BuyWhat[]'])){
    ?>
    <form action="MyBuyPage.php" method=post>
    <?
    for($i = 0; $i < Count($_POST['BuyWhat[]']); $i++){
    $itemDetails = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM tblItems WHERE ItemID = ".$_POST['BuyWhat[]'][$i]);
    // write out your item details along with how many they want to buy and such...
    ?>
    <br>
    <?
    };
    ?>
    <input type=submit value=Buy>
    </form><? }; ?>
    If you are using PHP please use the [PHP] and [/PHP] forum tags for highlighting...
    The same applies to HTML and the forums [HTML][/HTML] tags.
