This is really not a db question - but here is an example (ZPT syntax).

<select name="operation">
  <option tal:content="request/operation|nothing"></option>
  <div tal:repeat="rd python:container.select_process_operations_sql(
    <option tal:content="rd/operation"></option>

Notes:  the first option is there, is empty on initial presentation.
I always use the same for for error handling, so it is filled with the
most recently stored value of the request.  The div is a call to a ZSQL
method.  I like explicit arguments.  That's really all there is to it.
