Hello Shumaiza
i hope this code solves your problem
Assuming that you got the resultset
out.println("<select name=\"Location\">");
out.println("<option value=\" "+resultset.getString(1)+"\">+resultset.getString(1)+"</option>");
out.println("<option value=\" "+resultset.getString(1)+"\">+resultset.getString(1)+"</option>");
