It will only be checked if you put CHECKED in your HTML.

if($myrow['abb'] == 1) { echo " checked "; }

Add that into your input element.

Subject: [PHP] Checkbox Initial Value based on record in db

Kinda off topic here, just checking to see If I am on the right track with

<input type="checkbox" name="abb" value="<?php echo $myrow['abb'] ?>">

the result should be :

IF the record contains the field "abb" and it has a value of 1 then it will
be checked off for viewing.

Brainfarting all day !!

Thank You
