Default how to store 2 checkbox values in separate lines i


I created a checkbox that allows users to select more than one boxes and use Access db to store values. How do I make 2 lines in Access table field if a user select 2 boxes.

Here is my code:
<input type="checkbox" name="a" id="a" value="Asian" />Asian<BR />
<input type="checkbox" name="a" id="b" value="Latino" />Latino<BR />
<input type="checkbox" name="a" id="c" value="White" />White<BR />

If a user check 2 first boxes, I like to have a value in the field to be:

Instead of Asian, Latino

How do we do that?


There is NO stupid question.

If your checkboxes are named the same you will get a commer delimited string posted in the one request.form value. Uniquely name your checkboxes to get independant vales posted, just like any otehr forma element

NOTE: You have uniquely named 'id' properties however IE receives the 'name' property
