Rob, these are checkboxes right?  If so, when they are submitted only the
checked ones are sent, so you don't need to verify each one.  Furthermore
they come in as a comma/space separated string, like:

val1, val2, val3

A simple split() yields a loopable array:

dim checkboxes
checkboxes = split(request("TX_Hays"), ", ")
' note that all your checkboxes per group should have the same name, diff.

I missed the first 1/2 of this thread so forgive me if my message is
completely irrelevant. :)
