Javascript issue

See attached file

It winds up putting in qs (the query string being passed) EVERY checkbox element on the form; I only want the UNCHECKED ones.

I suspect the code if (! en.checked) is in error.

How can I fix this?

Jeffrey Dake Senior Director of TechnologyCommented:
Looks like you are setting your en variable equal to the name of the checkbox instead of the checkbox itself.  Try changing your if statement to check e.checked instead of en.checked.

function chk_vals() {
				if (ac == "m") {
					 window.location = "admin_menu.php";
					 return false
				ne = document.st.elements.length;
				qs = "";
				for (i = 0; i < ne; i++) {
					e = document.st.elements[i];
					if (e.type == "checkbox") {
						en = e.name;
						if (!e.checked) {
							if (qs == "") {
								qs = "?" + en + "=u";
							} else {
								qs = qs + "&" + en + "=u";
				if (ac == "a") {
					document.st.action = "updt_base_citylinks.php" + qs;
					 return true;
