I'm trying to create a form that has checkboxes on it that when a user checks the particular boxes, and submits the form, it performs the query based on the selections.
I'm using MS Access and FrontPage. I'm having problems passing the information from the form to the query and then to the database.
Any links or suggestions would be appreciated. I'm new to ASP an SQL so any helpful links would also be appreciated.

form elements are passed via their name and value to asp pages, using the post or get methods.
therefore, your checkbox needs to have a name attribute in order for it to be picked up by the forms collection of the request object.
then in ASP, you refer to this as
<input type="checkbox" name="something" />
Something you can do to check what your form is passing in terms of values, is make your page post to a page which loops through the forms collection and writes all the values out to the page.
then you can see what's being passed, if its not as expected then you haven't setup the element names or variables in the ASP.
for each blah in request.form
response.write blah & "<br>"
Hopefully this gets you on the right track.....I'd recommend you buy beginning asp 3.0 by wrox press.
