OK, so your intended use is to "see the selected record(s?)" (based on the checkboxes selected). Now your problem is not with the "see selected record" bit (I'm pretty sure you've got that sussed out), it is with "how do I handle checkboxes". See below. > Probably, but then again all questions posted here > could be derived from the manual. I would guess that 80% of the questions on the list could be answered with _direct_ reference to the manual(s). By direct reference I mean either searching the manual for the 1 or 2 _obvious_ keywords or looking in the _obvious_ section of the manual. For example, some people have asked "how do I escape strings before inserting them into a mysql database", well one of the obvious place would be to look at the mysql section of the php manual, and if the asker had done that they would have seen that there are functions called mysql_real_escape_string() and mysql_escape_string(). That's why people should RTFM first, before even thinking of posting to the list! Anyway ... > So I set the value of the check box to: > <th height="38" scope="row"><input type="checkbox" > name="checkbox" value="<?php echo > $rsRes->Fields('Rese'); ?>"></th> ... there's your problem, all your checkboxes have the same name. PHP is not smart enough to automatically put them into an array, so if you check more than one checkbox PHP will either keep the first checkbox or the last checkbox (I don't know the exact behaviour (and don't care) but you can easily do some tests to find out should you wish). > While it returns from the correct field it is not > returning the correct record.

Indeed, that is what the manual hints at, and what the articles will tell you to do. -- Jason Wong -> Gremlins Associates -> www.gremlins.biz Open Source Software Systems Integrators * Web Design & Hosting * Internet & Intranet Applications Development * ------------------------------------------ Search the list archives before you post http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=php-db ------------------------------------------ /* Okay ...
