Getting checked or unchecked checkboxes on update page from checkbox-group

Hallo experts.
How can i get checked or uncheched my checkboxes in a update page getting the values from a column where i have values inserted with a checkbox group.
Using:
<input <cfif (#dboartikel.Metallic# EQ 1)>checked="checked"</cfif> type="checkbox" name="Metallic" id="Metallic" value="1" />
i can get it for i checkbox that takes the value from one column with one value.
I have also some thing like that:
<input type="checkbox" name="Besonderheiten" value="text1" />
<input type="checkbox" name="Besonderheiten" value="text2" />
<input type="checkbox" name="Besonderheiten" value="text3" />

Where Tex1,Text2,Text3 are values stored in one comn(text1,text2,text3)

<cfquery  datasource="" name="data">
select val from tbl_tasks
</cfquery>

<cfset vallist = valuelist(data.val,',')>

<input type="checkbox" name="test" <cfif listfind(vallist ,1)> checked </cfif> value="1" >

valuelist takes queryname.column name and the delemiter and creates a list with all values of that column then check with cfif statemnt listfind in each checkboc input statement
