Well, I need to add a few more parameters to the search fields, and so far I'm not having much luck. I need to add 2 dynamic drop down list to the search form. I've tried just starting with one, but I can't seem to get it to pull any results. I attached and image of the general table structure.

The pcms2_users.small_group column contains and integer the references and small_group.small_group contains a list of names of Small Groups. The small_group.dc column contains an integer that matches the column and the dc.dc column contains the actual names of DC's that I want to populate the dropdown.

The end result is to select a DC from the dropdown and have the search return a list of users from the pcms2_users table that have an integer in the pcms2_users.small_group column which matches a row in the small_group table containing an integer in small_group.dc that matches the of the dc.dc selected in the dropdown, and display the dc.dc in the DC column of the table

This is what I did, and all I'm getting is a blank dropdown menu.
