multiple dynamic slect lists on item page

multiple dynamic slect lists on item page

I'm trying to include 3 drop down lists on each item page that pull from the same set of data (alphabet). I want each of these 3 options to show up on my cart/order.

I've tried several ways of doing this and could never make it work past adding the first select list.

Really, what I would like to do is have a separate table with all my options to be available to every item. I suspect I need to create 3 columns, create an updatable select list for each of them using the add to cart dialog, then call for them in the cart. Did that - the item won't add to the cart.

Can you take a look at my code?

Just an update here...I found that I can have the multiple drop downs, but for some reason it's limiting the number of items I can have in the list. The reason it wasn't working with the dynamic list pulled from a recordset was because there were too many items.

This doesn't make sense, however. Why would it limit that?

So I switched over to a hard-coded select list, as there is no price increase and it's the same for all pages - no problem. By adding one item at a time, I've determined that in the first list I can have all 60 items that I need (A-Z, Alpha-Omega, 0-9), the second one I'm allowed 43, and the third I can only put 30. Weird, right?
