Hi! Here am I again with a (maybe stupid...) problem:

I have on a page 8 checkboxs. I'm doing something like this:
<form action = "2.asp">
<%for i =1 to 8%>
<TR>
<TD><INPUT type="checkbox" id=checkbox1 name="pendente<%=i%>"></TD>
</TR>
<%next%>
</form>

How can I, on the "2.asp" page, when I'm doing my SQL Insert string, retrieve the value of those checkbox's? I need to know If the first is "on" or not, the second, and so on...

I can't do this!!! I've been trying for 2 days!
Please help...

Thank's
Paula

With checkboxes, the value that you get by default will be "on" if the box is checked or it will be null if the box isn't checked.



<%
for i =1 to 8
response.write "The value of checkbox "&i&" is: "&request.querystring("pendente"&i)&"<br>"
next
%>


The output will be the following if you check boxes 1, 5, and 8:

The value of checkbox 1 is: on
The value of checkbox 2 is:
The value of checkbox 3 is:
The value of checkbox 4 is:
The value of checkbox 5 is: on
The value of checkbox 6 is:
The value of checkbox 7 is:
The value of checkbox 8 is: on

edit: You can use if-statements to change the null values to "off" since most people like strings better.
