I'm using a php page to display values on a database.

The form action is itself (php_self). It's working ok except for when the page is first viewed the error message:

PHP Notice: Undefined index: manufacturer.....

I think this is because the manufacturer doesn't have a value until the form is submitted.

I'm using:

$manufacturer = $_REQUEST["manufacturer"];

This problem only occurs on my localhost, please help!
