OK. If I am using the POST method and the checkbox 'name' for all of the checkboxes is 'system', how do I access the results? I am researching on the PHP site trying to figure out what this array is, and how I access this if the index name is the same for all elements. I am hoping that this data will be in an array and I can simply loop through the contents of the array. If this data is stored in a hash (Perl word for this type of array, not sure if it's the same in PHP), how do I access this data since the index for every element would be the same? I am SURE that I am probably missing some important conceptual issues here, but still learning as I go. Unfortunately, this probably means that I will be completely rewriting this application at least once in the future. Oh well, live and learn. Thanks again for the help.

I know that this is not the forum for this question, I am only looking for a pointer in the right direction here. I need to gain a better understanding of HTML forms, specifically checkboxes. What I am looking for is once I present a list of checkboxes and the user makes his selections, how is this presented to the subsequent pages? Does anyone know of a website that has a tutorial or good explanation of how this works? Thanks in advance.
