i have two files.
this is the first one:
authority_process.php
-------
<html>
<table border="1" width="100%" bordercolor="#FFFFFF">
<form action="authority_send_emails.php" method="POST">
<?
   // link to the database
   $linkID = mysql_connect("localhost","","");
   $result = mysql_select_db("test_toaster",$linkID);

   $condition = $Submit && ($Subjects != "Choose one");
   if ($condition) {
   $selected = mysql_query("SELECT id FROM subject WHERE name='$Subjects'", $linkID);
   $selected_subject_id = mysql_fetch_array($selected);
   $selected_subject_id = $selected_subject_id["id"];
   $table_teaches = mysql_query("SELECT instructor_id FROM teaches WHERE subject_id='$selected_subject_id'", $linkID);
   if ($table_teaches != "")
   $teaches_rows_num = mysql_num_rows($table_teaches);
   if ($teaches_rows_num == 0)
       echo "NO instructors teach this subject";
   else{
     for ($num=0 ; $num < $teaches_rows_num ; $num++)
    {
    $teaches = mysql_fetch_array($table_teaches);
?>
    <tr>
    <td width="100%">
    <INPUT NAME="Check[<? echo $num ?>]" TYPE="CHECKBOX" VALUE="<? echo $num  ?>">
<?
    $instID = $teaches["instructor_id"];
    $table_instructor = mysql_query("SELECT fullname FROM instructor WHERE id='$instID'", $linkID);
    $name = mysql_fetch_array($table_instructor);
    $name[$num] = $name["fullname"];
    echo $name[$num] ?>
    </td>
    </tr>
<?
}//end for
?>
  <tr>
    <td width="100%">
        <p><input type="submit" value="Submit" name="B1"></p>
      </form>
    </td>
  </tr>
</table>
<?
}//end else
}//end if ($condition)
?>
</html>
------------------
------------------
and this is the 2nd one:
authority_send_emails.php
------------------
<?php
     for ($num=0 ; $num < $teaches_rows_num ; $num++){
     if ($Check[$num] == "$num")
     echo $name[$num];
}
?>
------------------

The $name is not recognized in authority_send_emails ??

I can't find any form-fields with the name="name[]" in authority_process.php. That's probably your problem.

The only field I could find is Check[]

Maybe you need a hidden-field in authority_process.php?

<input type="hidden" Name="name[<? echo $num ?>]" value="<? echo $name[$num]; ?>">

<html>
<table border="1" width="100%" bordercolor="#FFFFFF">
<form action="authority_send_emails.php" method="POST">
<?
   // link to the database
   $linkID = mysql_connect("localhost","","");
   $result = mysql_select_db("test_toaster",$linkID);

   $condition = $Submit && ($Subjects != "Choose one");
   if ($condition) {
   $selected = mysql_query("SELECT id FROM subject WHERE name='$Subjects'", $linkID);
   $selected_subject_id = mysql_fetch_array($selected);
   $selected_subject_id = $selected_subject_id["id"];
   $table_teaches = mysql_query("SELECT instructor_id FROM teaches WHERE subject_id='$selected_subject_id'", $linkID);
   if ($table_teaches != "")
   $teaches_rows_num = mysql_num_rows($table_teaches);
   if ($teaches_rows_num == 0)
       echo "NO instructors teach this subject";
   else{
     for ($num=0 ; $num < $teaches_rows_num ; $num++)
    {
    $teaches = mysql_fetch_array($table_teaches);
?>
    <tr>

Instead of

   $name[$num] = $name["fullname"];
   echo $name[$num] ?>

why don't simply type

echo $name["fullname"];

?

I think you are mistaking somewhere instead try to use of array like check[<?echo $num?>] will not create an array it will create a variable like check[1] but this is not a array try to use like this

check<?echo $num?> this will generate variables check1, check2 etc and make a hidden field which calculates the number of check boxes and the in for loop you can retive the the variables like
$chk="check".$num;
echo $$chk;

About:
"I think you are mistaking somewhere instead try to use of array like check[<?echo $num?>] will not create
an array it will create a variable like check[1] but this is not a array"

Are you sure about this? I don't think so, I have used this a lot of times, and it's easy to loop through the array afterwards. check[<? echo $num; ?>] WILL CREATE A ARRAY.
