I am able to submit all fields into my database with the exception of the art_photos[] checkbox array. All fields enter their correct data but the array inserts the word NULL. Any help would be appreciated as to why the array won't insert my data value.  I removed the styles from this code so if you see something regarding Spry, just ignore that part of the code. Here's what I am working with.


<?php virtual('/budgets/Connections/connAdmin.php'); ?>
<?php
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
{
  if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
    $theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;
  }

  $theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

  switch ($theType) {
    case "text":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
      break;    
    case "long":
    case "int":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
      break;
    case "double":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";
      break;
    case "date":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
      break;
    case "defined":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
      break;
  }
  return $theValue;
}
}

$editFormAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
  $editFormAction .= "?" . htmlentities($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']);
}

if ((isset($_POST["MM_insert"])) && ($_POST["MM_insert"] == "form1")) {
  $insertSQL = sprintf("INSERT INTO daily_budget (rundate, slug, reporter, budgetInfo, notes, `section`, deadline, art_photos, sidebar, sBudget) VALUES (%s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s)",
                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['rundate'], "text"),
                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['slug'], "text"),
                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['reporter'], "text"),
                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['budgetInfo'], "text"),
                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['notes'], "text"),
                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['section'], "text"),
                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['deadline'], "text"),
                                 GetSQLValueString($_POST['art_photos'], "text"),
                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['sidebar'], "text"),
                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['sBudget'], "text"));

  mysql_select_db($database_connAdmin, $connAdmin);
  $Result1 = mysql_query($insertSQL, $connAdmin) or die(mysql_error());
}

I think the database field is not availab le to get any value from an array thus it is getting null,
you would have to implode the art_photos[] array with some character and then insert it into that field art_photos.
Is the field type text or varchar ?
