  2. Hi, Monika

    Performance issues aside, the problem with filling a drop down list
    box with such large number of options is taht the user will not be
    able to navigate properly through this much of data. I'd consider a
    filter of some sort to allow the user to narrow down the search items.

    However, it's possible to do it in pure ASP, yes.

    ---- BEGIN ASP SCRIPTLET ----

    <% Dim K %>
    <select id='ddlSample'>
    <% For K = 1 to 3000 %>
    <option value='<%= K %>'>Option <%= K %></option>
    <% Next %>
    </select>

    ---- END ASP SCRIPTLET ----
