I'm needing help in understanding how to update x amount of rows of data with 3 check boxes for each row. I know how to do this with one set of check boxes but can't seem to figure out multiple boxes.

The check boxes have a value of 1 in them.

Thanks,

Brian

<cfparam name="form.pa" default="0">
<cfparam name="form.wa" default="0">
<cfparam name="form.na" default="0">
 
<cfquery name="get_advertisers" datasource="#dns#">
    SELECT * 
    FROM advertisers
    ORDER BY company_name
</cfquery>
 
<cfif isDefined("form.submit") AND form.submit EQ "submit">
    <cfloop from="1" to="#form.counter#" index="id">
            <cfquery name="update_advertisers" datasource="#dns#">
                UPDATE 
                    advertisers_ad_list
                SET  print_advertising = '#form.pa#',
                     web_advertising = '#form.wa#',
                     newsletter_advertising = '#form.na#'
                WHERE advertiser_id = '#form.advertiser_id#'
            </cfquery>
	</cfloop>
</cfif>
 
<form action="<cfoutput>#CGI.SCRIPT_NAME#</cfoutput>" method="post">
<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3">
  <tr>
    <td width="351">Company Name</td>
    <td width="61" nowrap="nowrap"><div align="center">Print Ad</div></td>
    <td width="88" nowrap="nowrap"><div align="center">Web Banner</div></td>
    <td width="81" nowrap="nowrap"><div align="center">Newsletter</div></td>
  </tr>

        <td><div align="center">

Im not sure I understand the problem.

There are two ways to update multiple records.

1. Do Multiple Updates, ie loop over your logic and do an update for each iteration of loop
2. Update with a where, where all matching records would be updated in one hit. IE update table where category="y' all records with category Y would be updated.
