Auto-selecting "State" and "Country" drop-down values with Customer Recordset

Auto-selecting "State" and "Country" drop-down values with Customer Recordset

I am successfully auto-populating the Customer Billing Information on the checkout.php page (checkout wizard) with bindings from an added Customer Table Recordset filtered on a "username" session variable (email address). The only snag are the two drop-downs for the "Country" and "State".

What PHP coding do I need to set these values via filtered recordset upon page load? I have pasted sample coding for what works (Address_2) and for what doesn't (Country drop-down).

Any help you can give me would be much appreciated.

Thanks a lot!
