How do you record check box selections in the database?

P: n/a
I have a series of check boxes which appear upon a particular combo box
selection. I want to record each selection in the database. More than one
check box may be selected. Please help.

bind them to a table. the fact that they're temporarily hidden is
largely immaterial.

So your table might look something like this:

CREATE TABLE Answers(
Person TEXT(20) NOT NULL,
Q1 YES/NO,
Q2 YES/NO,
......
)

Then in your form, you just drop the Q1...Qn fields onto it, and away
you go.

Does this work if the check boxes are not yes/no? For instance, I have a
series of check boxes that list engine parts. (i.e. Manifold, Starter,
Alternator). Therefore, if I selected Manifold and Alternator, I would want
those words to be stored seperately in different fields in the database.

Thanks for your help
