That's what I thought but it keeps adding it back in there when I open and make changes to the MRT behavior. I'm now getting Truncated incorrect INTEGER value: in my list and when I look at the source generated it shows this...
<option value="1" select="" parent_categoryid="" from="" category_products="" where="" parent_productid="0" and="">Truncated incorrect INTEGER value: </option>
. That looks like I have something else breaking my code maybe but I am still looking. I will double check all my syntax.
