rays initial advice was to use the data base to populate the list, then use a recordset to lookup the delivery rate

  I'd probably create a database table (if you don't already have one) of all of the cities and rates.

You could then use that table to populate the list. When the list is submitted, you can add a recordset to tha action page of the form to filter a recordset based on the submitted value from the list to return the associated rate.

Store that returned rate as a session variable and add a shipping charge rule to the cart to charge a flat rate of the value of that session variable.  

the reason for doing it this way is that you probably want to show the selected delivery city, right? if the valuer in the select list is the delivery fee, there is no way to show what the delivery city selected is.

the delivery fee is not working because the recordset is filtering on the value posted by the select list. In this case the delivery fee, it s comparing the fee "15" to the city name column in the database. In other words, comparing apples to oranges.
