Here's what I do:

I write a small function to get the name of the Option via the ID.

e.g. (psuedo code)

function GetFruitNameByID (varID)
    select Name from FruitBasket where ID = varID
    GetFruitNameByID = objRS("Name")
end function

Then just use the Function on your preview page to return the name selected.
