this is probably a simple question. so i have all 52 states in my database, ordered by alphabet and state_id. so Alabama's state_id == 1, and California is 5. i make drop downs base on this database. when i pull data from the table i order by state_id, so Alabama comes up first (Alabama is SELECTED). what if I just want California to come up first, without actually hard-coding it to anything. i wanna be able to do it smartly. ideas? thanks!!
