you would need to hand code a loop to loop through the array, and use an insert to inner teach array piece, this will take hand coding to accomplish.

Here is a very simplistic example that shows how to do this;

<?php require_once('Connections/localhost.php'); ?>
<?php require_once("webassist/database_management/wa_appbuilder_php.php"); ?>
//if statement to make sure the checkbox group has a value
if(isset($_POST["CheckboxGroup1"])) {
//foreach loop added to loop through checkbox array
foreach($_POST["CheckboxGroup1"] as $k => $v) {
// WA DataAssist Insert
if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") // Trigger
$WA_connection = $localhost;
$WA_table = "options";
$WA_sessionName = "OptionID";
$WA_redirectURL = "";
if (function_exists("rel2abs")) $WA_redirectURL = $WA_redirectURL?rel2abs($WA_redirectURL,dirname(__FILE__)):"";
$WA_keepQueryString = false;
$WA_indexField = "OptionID";
$WA_fieldNamesStr = "OptionName";
// original biunding for the checkbox form element
//$WA_fieldValuesStr = "".((isset($_POST["CheckboxGroup1"]))?$_POST["CheckboxGroup1"]:"") ."";
// edited to use the $v variable created by the for each loop
$WA_fieldValuesStr = "".($v) ."";
$WA_columnTypesStr = "',none,''";
$WA_fieldNames = explode("|", $WA_fieldNamesStr);
$WA_fieldValues = explode($WA_AB_Split, $WA_fieldValuesStr);
$WA_columns = explode("|", $WA_columnTypesStr);
$WA_connectionDB = $database_localhost;
mysql_select_db($WA_connectionDB, $WA_connection);
$insertParamsObj = WA_AB_generateInsertParams($WA_fieldNames, $WA_columns, $WA_fieldValues, -1);
$WA_Sql = "INSERT INTO `" . $WA_table . "` (" . $insertParamsObj->WA_tableValues . ") VALUES (" . $insertParamsObj->WA_dbValues . ")";
$MM_editCmd = mysql_query($WA_Sql, $WA_connection) or die(mysql_error());
$_SESSION[$WA_sessionName] = mysql_insert_id();
if ($WA_redirectURL != "") {
if ($WA_keepQueryString && $WA_redirectURL != "" && isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] !== "" && sizeof($_POST) > 0) {
$WA_redirectURL .= ((strpos($WA_redirectURL, '?') === false)?"?":"&").$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"];
header("Location: ".$WA_redirectURL);
} //end foreach
} // end if
