DataAssist Wizard - Search with Multiple Checkboxes - Incorrect Results

DataAssist Wizard - Search with Multiple Checkboxes - Incorrect Results

When I run the DataAssist Wizard to create my search.php/results.php pages, my search page has the following:

First Name - textfield
Last Name - textfield
ID# - textfield
Included In Group A - checkbox
Included In Group B - checkbox

The pages are generated properly, however the search does not work properly when I include the two checkbox fields. It always returns 'no results'. To get any results, I have to check both boxes, which is not how the data actually looks.

I cannot find any tutorial/guides related to this. Both fields related to the checkboxes are as follows in my database:
IncludedInGroupA enum ('Y','N')
IncludedInGroupB enum ('Y','N')

I have tried selecting the checkboxes on the search page, and changing the checked value to 'Y' but still no success.

Attached are a couple screenshots to help illustrate.

what is the values for these check boxes in the database (are they "y" and "n" or "1" and "0")?

In the MySQL Database, the fields for the checkboxes are as follows:

IncludedInArtistsExhibited enum('Y','N')
IncludedInArtistsInventory enum('Y','N')

...so inserted values are either Y or N.

Generated Search Form looks as attached.
I also attached a screenshot of the edit I made to the checkboxes. I changed the "checked value" to Y for both checkboxes to match the Y,N enum values in my database (i think that should work?)

See attached.

Thanks for any further help.

I think the issue is using check boxes instead of using a CheckBox group or a Radio group.

please send me your search and results page and a sample of data in your database (test data, not live), and i will do a test to determine the cause of this issue.

The problems seems to be in the filter used for the check boxes. On your results page, open the Server Behaviors Panel (Window -> Server Behaviors) and double click the DataAssist Search Server Behavior, and for the check boxes setting change the filter to "Edit". And then on your Search page, change the Checked value for the check boxes to "Y" instead of "1". This should get you the results you are looking for.

Thanks.

Changing the filter to "Edit" on both checkboxes worked.

Thanks again! I apologize for the slow response.
