I have three tables:

class Technology(models.Model):
    technology = models.CharField(max_length=100, null=True,
blank=True )
    def __unicode__(self):
    class Meta:
        ordering = ["technology"]

class Publication(models.Model):
    pubtitle = models.TextField(null=True, blank=True)
def __unicode__(self):
        return self.pubtitle
    class Meta:
        ordering = ["pubtitle"]

class Techpubcombo(models.Model):
    technology = models.ForeignKey(Technology)
    publication = models.ForeignKey(Publication)

The user selects a technology from the drop down menu on the web
page.  The technology is retrieved
from the database table and then it must be used to retrieve the
publication attributes, by first going through the Techpubcombo table.

I wrote the select to retrieve the data for the html drop down box:
    technology_list = Technology.objects.all().order_by('technology')

After the user makes a selection, the technology_id is retrieved:
  technology_id = request.POST['technology_id']
    t = get_object_or_404(Technology, pk=technology_id)

Now I need to use the technology_id to get to the publication

This is where I'm stuck.

I get error messages when I try to do something like:
