Hi Jason,

Thanks for the reply. The view source isn't really a true reflection. I haven't changed anything on the live site so it would show numeric options. On my testing server it shows the following

html:
<td>
<select name="region" class="dropBox">
<option value="">All</option>
<option value="England: East">England: East</option>

<option value="England: East Midlands">England: East Midlands</option>

<option value="England: London">England: London</option>

<option value="England: North East">England: North East</option>

<option value="England: North West">England: North West</option>

<option value="England: South East">England: South East</option>

<option value="England: South West">England: South West</option>

<option value="England: West Midlands">England: West Midlands</option>

<option value="England: Yorkshire and the Humber">England: Yorkshire and the Humber</option>

<option value="National">National</option>

<option value="Northern Ireland">Northern Ireland</option>

<option value="Scotland: Central">Scotland: Central</option>

<option value="Scotland: Highlands and I">Scotland: Highlands and Islands</option>

<option value="Scotland: North East">Scotland: North East</option>

<option value="Scotland: South East">Scotland: South East</option>

<option value="Scotland: South West">Scotland: South West</option>

<option value="Scotland: West">Scotland: West</option>

<option value="Wales: Mid">Wales: Mid</option>

<option value="Wales: North">Wales: North</option>

<option value="Wales: South East">Wales: South East</option>

<option value="Wales: South West">Wales: South West</option>

</select>
</td>

I was merely trying to point out that a "similar" search worked on my testing server with the new text "options" or text ID's in the database.

I've just tried the same exercise on the search page of my admin section (on my testing server) and this is showing the correct options

html:
<th class="WADADataTableHeader">Region:</th>
<td class="WADADataTableCell">
<select name="S_FKeventsRegionID" id="S_FKeventsRegionID">
<option value="">All</option>
<option value="England: East">England: East</option>
<option value="England: East Midlands">England: East Midlands</option>
<option value="England: London">England: London</option>
<option value="England: North East">England: North East</option>
<option value="England: North West">England: North West</option>
<option value="England: South East">England: South East</option>
<option value="England: South West">England: South West</option>
<option value="England: West Midlands">England: West Midlands</option>
<option value="England: Yorkshire and the Humber">England: Yorkshire and the Humber</option>
<option value="National">National</option>
<option value="Northern Ireland">Northern Ireland</option>
<option value="Scotland: Central">Scotland: Central</option>
<option value="Scotland: Highlands and I">Scotland: Highlands and Islands</option>
<option value="Scotland: North East">Scotland: North East</option>
<option value="Scotland: South East">Scotland: South East</option>
<option value="Scotland: South West">Scotland: South West</option>
<option value="Scotland: West">Scotland: West</option>
<option value="Wales: Mid">Wales: Mid</option>
<option value="Wales: North">Wales: North</option>
<option value="Wales: South East">Wales: South East</option>
<option value="Wales: South West">Wales: South West</option>
</select>
</td>
