Ah i getcha.

Checkboxes only have a few options as values (On, or a value that you give it (like 1). Personally I tend to use (esp for items like permissions that are either on or off) a value of 1. Then if its 1, I know that the box was checked and that is what the user wants to have.

$3 = $_POST['3'];  would be the way to access that element

Now if you are using a db to create the form in the first place, you can use that same call to loop thru the post array, instead of echoing it out.

Is that clearer?

Good morning Bastien

This doesn't help.  I am having no problems creating the form of what the
current permissions are based on the permission access table. I am not sure
what to do with the form once it has been submitted.

I am able to create the table which shows each permission function and what
the current values are.  Take a look at the name= fields; "Discipleship &
Follow Up" is a category, the 2 functions being granted permission are the
Christian Ministry & Business Directory Administration and the Verse of the
Day Administration.

<tr><td><font face="times new roman">Discipleship & Follow Up</td>
<td><font face="times new roman"><table><tr><td width="80%"><input
type="checkbox" name="3" checked="checked">
Christian Ministry and Business Directory Administration</td><td
width="20%"><input type=text name="performance_review_3" value="2006-03-11"
size=10 maxlength=10></td></tr>
<tr><td width="80%"><input type="checkbox" name="1" checked="checked">
Verse of the Day Administration</td><td width="20%"><input type=text
name="performance_review_1" value="2006-03-08" size=10 maxlength=10></td></tr>

My problem is that I am not sure how to find out the value of $3 and
$performance_review_3 when the form has been submitted.  The reason I am
having problems is because the # changes --- it is 3 and 1 in the above

What I want to do is a SELECT * using the logged in user's reference number
as the searching criteria ... then take a look at what was just submitted and
then see if there is a difference.  If there is a difference make what was
submitted through the form (above) reality.

I am going to query the table that generated the form (above) --- it knows
how many components there are and then I could use a

WHILE $i < $number_of_permissions {


What troubles me is that $i isn't $3 and I am not sure how to retrieve the
value of $3 when $i isn't the same variable name.
