I wouldn't store the selected search engines in a separate table, I would store the as a comma separated list in a column of the main table.

to do this, name the checkboxes the same with a "[]} at the end to create an array of the selections, for example:

<input type="checkbox" name="searchEngines[]" value="Google" id="searchEngines_0" />
<br />
<input type="checkbox" name="searchEngines[]" value="Bing" id="searchEngines_1" />
<br />
<input type="checkbox" name="searchEngines[]" value="Yahoo" id="searchEngines_2" />
<br />

in the insert record, when you bind the searchengine column to the search engine checkbox group, the code will look like this:

<?php echo((isset($_POST["searchEngines[]"]))?$_POST["searchEngines[]"]:""?>

you will need to remove the "[]" from the end of the name:

<?php echo((isset($_POST["searchEngines"]))?$_POST["searchEngines"]:""?>

the add this code to convert the array to a string at line :


if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST")     {
$_POST as $key => $val) {
is_array($_POST[$key])) $_POST[$key] = implode(", "$_POST[$key]);
