Checkbox unchecked not returning a 0 in DB

Checkbox unchecked not returning a 0 in DB

I have a couple of checkboxes on a page that work and pass a value of 1 when checked, but when unchecked, I am getting a value of NULL rather than 0. I am using the 0 for other functions across my pages, so need it to work!

I used security assist to build a log in and registration / user update / password reminder etc, but none of the menus or check boxes could have BD values tied to them during in the wizard, so I then manually tied the menus and checkboxes to the DB. The menus work fine, but the checkboxes only work when a value of 1 (checked) is passed to the DB.

I manually tied it by selecting the checkbox and in the properties panel giving a value of 1 and then clicking the Dynamic button setting the check if to <?php $row_SecurityAssisttblstudents['fld_sALLERGIES'] ?> and the value to 1.

Here's the checkbox code:
<input <?php if (!(strcmp($row_SecurityAssisttblstudents['fld_sALLERGIES'],1))) {echo "checked=\"checked\"";} ?> type="checkbox" name="User_Update_group_11_Any_allergies" id="User_Update_group_11_Any_allergies" value="1" class="formCheckboxField_Standard"<?php echo $row_SecurityAssisttblstudents["fld_sALLERGIES"]; ?> tabindex="11">

And the update code:
// WA DataAssist Update
if ((isset($_POST["UserUpdate_submit"]) && $_POST["UserUpdate_submit"] != "")) // Trigger
$WA_connection = $conn_mrs;
$WA_table = "tbl_students";
$WA_redirectURL = "index.php?success=1";

$WhereObj = WA_AB_generateWhereClause($WA_where_fieldNames, $WA_where_columns, $WA_where_fieldValues, $WA_where_comparisons );
$WA_Sql = "UPDATE `" . $WA_table . "` SET " . $updateParamsObj->WA_setValues . " WHERE " . $WhereObj->sqlWhereClause . "";
$MM_editCmd = mysql_query($WA_Sql, $WA_connection) or die(mysql_error());
if ($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);

What am I missing?

In the update record behavior, set the Data Type for the allergies field to Checkbox 1,0
