3) While the second row is selected in step 2, enter the Selenium IDE command ‘select’ to the Command box field, enter the id locating strategy id=drop1 into the Target box field and enter ‘label=doc 4‘  shown below:

Note: The locating strategy id=drop1 is for locating the dropdown field on the http://omayo.blogspot.com/ URL page (Shown at the beginning of the article).

And ‘label=doc 4’ needs to be entered to the ‘Value’ field in Selenium IDE, to select the ‘doc 4’ option in the above-stated dropdown field.
