Hi all,

I am having difficulty with reading the multiple check box array values from a form.

I have searched this forum and copied and pasted WORKING code but this did not work for me.

I have copied and pasted, a working copy of process from ===  http://www.smartwebby.com/PHP/Phptips2.asp

BUT this does not work for me.

Checkboex have exactly the same syntax as supposed working versions of similar scripts. But i cannot get it to work.


Any ideas,

Cheers

<?php
print("<pre>");
print_r($_REQUEST);
$chkexpert = $_REQUEST['chkexpert'];
$hidSubmit = $_REQUEST['hidSubmit'];
$strExpert="";
if(isset($hidSubmit)){
$count=count($chkexpert);
for($i=0;$i<$count;$i++){$strExpert="$strExpert$chkexpert[$i], ";}
}
?>

<form name="form1" method="post" action=""> <table width="100%" border="0" bgcolor="#D6E3F7">
