I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Soccer: <input type="checkbox" name="sports" value="soccer"  /><br />
Football: <input type="checkbox" name="sports" value="football"  /><br />
Baseball: <input type="checkbox" name="sports" value="baseball"  /><br />
Basketball: <input type="checkbox" name="sports" value="basketball"  />
Other: <input type="checkbox" name="sports" value="other"  /> <input type="text" name="sports_other" value="" />

Request.Form("sports") will return you a comma delimited list of sports:
e.g.,  soccer,football,other
