Navigate to the next item on drop-down menu

Fantastic program.
 
I have searched a bit and found a procedure to have the bot navigate to the next item in a "State" drop down.  But the posts are older and perhaps the versions don't match up to mine. (ver 2.8.2.2016.01.17)
 
I have tried to copy the procedure from these threads:

It won't navagate through the drop down list.  So i have been just manually changing the "State" in the Form before running it.

If your list of states is fixed, then you can create a dataset with the values.    
 
Then simply repeat on the dataset to loop through the states.  
 
You can refer Section 2.7 "Draw Data from Databases" in the manual for how to do this.

I'll have to try that out.  For now, I think I broke the website I'm trying to scrape, or was blocked.  Need to figure out proxies next.
