when using a multi checkbox in php, the name of the checkbox must end in "[]", for example:

<input type="checkbox" name="Availability[]" value="Monday" id="Availability_0" />

this will create an array of the multiple selections. when you add the binding in the insert or update record server behavior, code will look like:

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

you will need to edit this code to use the php implode function to convert the array to a coma separated list

<?php echo ((isset($_POST["Availability"]))?implode(", "$_POST["Availability"]):""); ?>

On the update page, you will need to make a few modifications to preselect the correct checkboxes.

You will need to use the php explode and in_array functions:

<input type="checkbox" name="Availability[]" value="Monday" id="Availability_0" <?php echo((in_array("Monday"explode(", "$row_RecordsetName['ColumnName'])))?"checked=checked":""); ?>/>
