Topic: ODBC - getColumnArray to populate list box
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 55017
Date: 5/29/2002 05:09 PM

I am trying to create an array to populate a list box with all the values in a column from an odbc query.

While testing the results of the returned array it only returns the first value in the column. I think I needs to get the script to cycle through the records to collect all the values in the column. I am not sure how to do that. What needs to be done to get the value of each record in the column into the array?

Any help would be appreciated.

here is what I am trying:

if (statement.execute(strSQL)) throw "Could not execute the requested SQL";
var e;
try {
}catch(e) {

var row = statement.getRow();
var c;
try {
var finished = false ;
while (finished == false) {
var id_array = statement.getColumn(1,5).value;}

}catch(c) {
