I have a drop down that pulls its list of options from a Data Type called “Department” which simply lists some department names.
Here is the configuration:
I know want to set the initial value of the drop down selection to a department name passed via a URL as text from another page.
Here, in this example, I passed a value called “PR” from another page. It is showing up as text in the debugging text box I added.
I can’t figure out how to use this value to make the default value of my drop down box equal to this passed parameter value.
In the shot below, you see I am setting the dept_name to the dept parameter which is text that is passed from the other page.
I think I am missing something basic here.
