I need to allow users to use a checkbox to  make a change to multiple items in a mysql database - I'm a beginner at this and haven't found a good way to do this online.  I'm on a tight deadline and need to get this done.
mysql_select_db($database_localhost, $localhost);
//List Variables from Login Confirm Submission
$amerinetid = $_POST["amerinetid"];
$facilityname = $_POST["facilityname"];
$facilityaddress = $_POST["facilityaddress"];
$facilitycity = $_POST["facilitycity"];
$facilitystate = $_POST["facilitystate"];
$facilityzip = $_POST["facilityzip"];
$facilityphone = $_POST["facilityphone"];
/*Find any existing Media requests for this ID*/
$existingmediarequestquery = "SELECT inservicemedia.title, mediatransactions.mediatransaction_id, mediatransactions.firstdayneeded, mediatransactions.lastdayneeded FROM mediatransactions left join inservicemedia on inservicemedia.inservicemedia_id = mediatransactions.inservicemedia_id where mediatransactions.amerinetid = '$amerinetid'";
$existingmediarequestresult = mysql_query($existingmediarequestquery) or die(mysql_error());
$existingmediarequesttotal = mysql_num_rows($existingmediarequestresult);

	if(isset($_POST["confirm"]) && trim($_POST["confirm"])!=='') {
			//Check for Existing Media Reservations for this ID 
				if(0 == $existingmediarequesttotal) {
					echo "No Requests found for this Amerinet ID<br>" .
						 "<form action='reservechange.php' method='post'>" .

						 "<input type='submit' name='requestnew' value='Request New'/></form>";
			//Show User the Information found in the database and Confirm Submission	
				else {
		 			echo "<form action='reservechange.php' method='post'>";
					while ($existingmedianamerequestrow = mysql_fetch_array($existingmediarequestresult, MYSQL_ASSOC))
					echo "<input type='checkbox' name='mediacheckbox' value='{$existingmedianamerequestrow['mediatransaction_id']}' unchecked><input type='hidden' name='mediatitle' value='{$existingmedianamerequestrow['title']}'/>{$existingmedianamerequestrow['title']} reserved from <input type='hidden' name='mediafirstday' value='{$existingmedianamerequestrow['firstdayneeded']}'/>{$existingmedianamerequestrow['firstdayneeded']} until <input type='hidden' name='medialastday' value='{$existingmedianamerequestrow['lastdayneeded']}'/>{$existingmedianamerequestrow['lastdayneeded']}<input type='hidden' name='amerinetid' value='$amerinetid'><br>";

	} else {
	//Redirect to the Original Form if this page is accessed directly
	echo '<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" Content="0; URL=../index.php">';
