PHP Pass Parameter

Hi I would like some help passing parameter. Currently I have a Drop Down Menu and I would like to pass the parameter that I choose from the Drop Menu. Like If I choose 'Testing' from Drop Menu pass that name into the URL.

Output: Ejecutar-Equipo.php?Name=Testing

Thanks a lot

<FORM NAME="frmMenu" OnSubmit="jumptourl()" action="Ejecutar-Equipo.php" method="get" >    
    <input name="txtUser" type="hidden" class="style3" value="<?php echo $User->userid;?>" size="40" maxlength="15">
    <SELECT NAME="Equipo"  OnChange="frmMenu.submit()">
    $link = OpenConnection();
      $result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM MisEquipos WHERE username= '$txtUser'  ORDER BY 'sort' ASC");
        echo '<OPTION VALUE="">Escoja su Equipo...';
      while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
        /* display menu items  */
        $option =  "<option  value=\"".$row[campoalt]."\" />"."Nombre Equipo: ".$row[equipo]." ";
        echo ("".$option."");    
    <!-- <input name="txtUser" type="text" class="style3" value="<?php echo $row[0];?>" size="40" maxlength="15">  -->
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
          function jumptourl()
            window.location = './index.php?m=' + frmMenu.Equipo'&s=0';

as far as i know the value of option tags is supposed to be a digit not a string but maybe someone else knows better. so u may read the campoalt-values into an array while looping thru the mysq_fetch_array and then take the keys of this array as value for the option tag.
buena suerte

Well you cant have both an action and a function wich do a window.location when submitting....

This will not work. simply rem the jumptour function and you should have the parm at Ejecutar-Equipo.php

<FORM NAME="frmMenu" onSubmit="jumptourl()" action="Ejecutar-Equipo.php" method="get" >

function jumptourl()
window.location = './index.php?m=' + frmMenu.Equipo'&s=0';

and for J-Ray, refering to W3C and HTML 4.0 specs:

Select option value = cdata [CS] This attribute specifies the initial value of the control.

CDATA is a sequence of characters from the document character set and may include character entities. User agents should interpret attribute values as follows:
Replace character entities with characters,
Ignore line feeds,
Replace each carriage return or tab with a single space.

So it can be almost anything :-)

Good Luck!
