  I am having a bit of trouble with the error. I hava a product and
category table and wanting to display the categories in a drop down
list.  Below is the error I get. Any suggestion on how I can fix this.

undefined method `name' for #<Category:0x3652448>

9:     <select name="product[category_id]">
10:       <% @categories.each do |category| %>
11:       <option value="<%= %>">
12:         <%= %>
13:       </option>
14:       <% end %>
15:     </select>

This may sound silly, but do you have a field named name in your
