I have this code to update the DB by subitting values in the checked columns
The problem is that it skips some entries and does not always subit the values entered

SQL Query

$thisid=$_POST['id'];
$nvalue = $_POST['newvalue'];
$chkd = $_POST['checked'];
foreach ($chkd as $key => $value) {

$sql="update invoice_subcategory set

Item_Cost='$nvalue[$value]' 
where ID='$value'";

$query=mysql_query($sql,$db);
}

html form

<?php $query = "SELECT * from invoice_subcategory ORDER BY Cat_ID ASC ";

$result_costs = mysql_query($query) ; 

while($costs = mysql_fetch_object($result_costs)){

  $is_name = $costs->SubCategory;

  $is_cost = $costs->Item_Cost;

  $id = $costs->ID;



               echo'<tr  bgcolor='.$table_background_body.'>

                          <td>'. $is_name.'</td>

                          <td>'. $is_cost.'</td>';
                          echo"<td><input type='text' name='newvalue[]'> </td>
                          <td><input type='checkbox' name='checked[]' value=$id ></td>

                        </tr>";

I am using a similar approach to a from I have where the admin must assign applications access to users. I have error checking in the form to avoid duplicates, but at least it should give you an idea of how I got it to work. I am using the checkboxes in an array and taking the value of the $_POST from the recordset values.

$AddData="no";
$MM_flag="MM_insert";
if((isset($_POST["insert"])) && (isset($_POST["MM_insert"])== "skills_access")) {
 
$AddData="yes";
$startWarning="no";
if (!$_POST['applications'] ) 
{ 
$AddData = "no";
$startWarning="yes";
?>
<div class="warningstart">Please complete the missing item(s) indicated. </div>
 
<?php
// if the applicaiton selection is missing - display error message
if (!isset($_POST['applications'])) { ?> 
<div class="warning"> 
<li>Select at least one Application</li></div>
<?php } ?>
<div class="warningend"></div> 
<?php
} 
//else
} 
mysql_select_db($database_mambo, $mambo);
$query_rsUserName = "SELECT * FROM mos_Corpusers ORDER BY username ASC";
$rsUserName = mysql_query($query_rsUserName, $mambo) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsUserName = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsUserName);
$totalRows_rsUserName = mysql_num_rows($rsUserName);
mysql_select_db($database_mambo, $mambo);
$query_rsApps = "SELECT * FROM web_access_applications ORDER BY app_description ASC";
$rsApps = mysql_query($query_rsApps, $mambo) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsApps = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsApps);
$totalRows_rsApps = mysql_num_rows($rsApps);
 
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "") 
{
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;
$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

"</br>".$row_rsfindmatch['app_description']."-".$web_app_id."-".$row_rsfindmambouser['username']."-".$mambo_user_id."Match Found and Record was not inserted!</br>";
}
}
}
}
?>

this form allows for check all checkboxes or uncheck all check boxes using javascript so in the head tag place this code (if you want to allow use)

<script type="text/javascript">
var formblock;
var forminputs; 
function prepare() 
{ formblock= document.getElementById('skills_access'); <--your form name
forminputs = formblock.getElementsByTagName('input');
} 
function select_all(name, value) { for (i = 0; i < forminputs.length; i++) { 
// regex here to check name attribute 
var regex = new RegExp(name, "i"); 
if (regex.test(forminputs[i].getAttribute('name'))) 
{ 
if (value == '1') 
{ 
forminputs[i].checked = true; 
} 
else 
{ 
forminputs[i].checked = false; 
} 
} 
}
} 
if (window.addEventListener) 
{ window.addEventListener("load", prepare, false);
} 
else if (window.attachEvent) 
{ window.attachEvent("onload", prepare)
} else if (document.getElementById) 
{ window.onload = prepare;} 
</script>

now the form

(There may be a bit more in this example than needed, but I was testing a few more things and have some additional stuff to add to it)
As I stated this is a simple example, but should get you started if nothing else.
Hope it helps!
