Add Additional State Field As Profile Field

I need to capture the driver's license state from customers.

I added a new profile field. Under type there was no option for state so I went to the database and for that profile field I changed the type to 'A'.

The data saves fine and I can see the value for the field in the database, but it does not display in administration customer profile update screen.


You can see in the screenshot above that the field does not select the state. I know for sure that the state is in the database.


In the above screen shot, I display the html code from the browser. It is adding an additional disabled hidden field that contains the state value from the database. It also adds some css classes which I'm guessing is because I set the field to type "state".

What did I do wrong?



I wanted to also add a screenshot of my setting for the profile field.
