Hi Ritschie,

Nope, on third thought, this is a php question, not a mysql question. If you
have a newsreader, a convenient way to read the php list is
news://news.netimages.com/php3.general (I wish mysql list would do this).
Anyway, take a look at your form.

If the portion of your form dealing with checkboxes used a technique like
this--
<?
echo "<form action=\"index.php3\" method=\"post\">";
echo "<input type=\"checkbox\" name=\"myname[]\" value=\"myvalue\"
unchecked>";
?>

Then the script handling the variable passed to it (index.php3) might look
something like this --
<?
$partcount = count($myname);
             reset($myname);
             for ($i = 0; $i < $partcount; $i++){
               $key = key($myname);
               $val = $myname[$key];
$string .= $val . "<BR>";
               next($myname);
             }
     ECHO "$string";
?>

Good Luck!,
Robert
