Now I need to make sure that I only enter each combination of select option and checkbox value once into the table and not multiple times. I am thinking I need to use contains().

Any help will save me time.

Thank you

you need not search each and every value in the table. Just make sure that you give the id value of a  row based on the value of checkbox value, so that before adding the value in table you just need to check if an element based on that value exists or not, ie

if the value of selected checkbox is val1, then make sure that it always goes in row of id value tr_val1, so before creating a new row, just check if an element exists with the same name, by
var element = document.getElementById("tr_"+checkBoxValue);
if (element == null)
{
   alert("element does not exists, so this value is not in the table now");
}

hope this helps
