Default Updating user status with checkbox

Hi everyone!
I need some code help for a problem that i am stuck with. The issue is to update the user table which has a status field which can contain only "YES" or "NO".

My 1st page shows all the listed users with a check box beside them. if the users are active (i.e database contains a "YES" value) then the checkbox are checked otherwise unchecked. If I uncheck any text box that user's value becomes "NO" in the database.

The checkbox looks like:
<input type="checkbox" name="ch<?=$i?>" value="<?=$memdata['adv_id']?>" <?if ($memdata['usr_status']=='YES') {?> checked <?}?>>

** i is the total no. of records
** $memdata['adv_id'] is the user id which is passed through the checkbox

I am using a hidden field to keep the count of check box.
<input type="hidden" name="txtcount" value="<?=$i?>">
** i is the total no. of checkbox & hence the tot. no. of records.

I am using the 2nd page for processing:Here is the code I am using to update the status of the user --

    if( $_POST['txtcount'] != "" )
        $chcount = $_POST['txtcount'];

    for($i = 0;$i < $chcount; $i++)
        if($_POST['ch'.$i] != "" )
            $up_query = mysql_query("update srch_adv_contact set usr_status = 'YES' where adv_id = '".$_POST['ch'.$i].
            $up_query = mysql_query("update srch_adv_contact set usr_status = 'NO' where adv_id <> '".$_POST['ch'.$i].

With this code if I don't put the else part I can change the status once but I cannot revoke the status again because once I uncheck any of the checkbox no value is updated. With the else clause no status is changed.

Please help me in this situation!!

Check the following for correct syntax...

<input type="checkbox" name="ch<?php echo $i; ?>" value="<?php echo $memdata['adv_id']; ?>"<?php if ($memdata['usr_status']=='YES') { ?>checked<?php } ?>>

<input type="hidden" name="txtcount" value="<?php echo $i; ?>">
