Server-Side VBScript reading checkbox value

This is a Classic ASP question concerning using VBScript on the Server Side to return the value of a Checkbox.  

I have a form that creates checkboxes in VBScript code then the page is first rendered. I create a variable number of checkboxes in a do loop (see code)

Essentially the code generates a dynamic number of checkboxes each with a different name, id, & value.  The value is the ID of a table into which I  want to save true/false based on whether the checkbox is checked.  The checkboxes appear to be generated correctly.

Then I post the form in which the checkboxes r located.  I'm able to read values of text boxes using VBScript on Server.

HOWEVER, when I attempt to read the checkboxes on the Server Side using VBScript to process the value of the checkbox.  I use code like

      myVal = Request.Form(strCbxName) .... where strCBXName = "cbx1', "cbx2" ....  

Regardless of the state of the checkbox, I cannot seem to get a value or checked status from the checkbox.  

Any thoughts on what is happening?

Thanks for your help
mynum = 0

Do while not rst1.EOF

   mynum = mynum + 1

   <input type="Checkbox" name="<%='cbx' & mynum%>  id = <%='cbx' & mynum%> value = <% rst1.fields('value') >

Loop

First of all your download includes an MS Access database and it is a potential threat.  Also it looks like the code is client side.  I need server side code.

Thanks anyway.

OK
Do not really appreciate the sarcasm with the link that I provided.
#1: If you do not feel comfortable downloading files with Access database files within them.
Then I suggest that you never download code, because 90% of the ASP code that you
Will download is going to have Access databases included.

#2: The script is "Server Side" not "Client Side"
Where do you get "Client-Side" out of the script that is located in them files?

I think that you need to study the code a little better then you just did.

Good Luck

>> Responses were useless.  Resolved the issue myself
This is very unprofessional on his/her part, and my responses were not useless.

I suggest:
