Interesting... That's pretty neat. I'll figure the rest out.

Thanks to all who've helped me on this.


Yeup it's really easy actually.  I see you have your checkboxes (logically)
grouped by state.  So, to get all the selected counties in say, IL, you'd do

dim strILCounties
strILCounties = request.form("IL")

What you will get is a comma/space separated string of values, all the
checked ones to be exact.  Response.write it and it should look like this:

county1, county2, county3

Now you can turn that into an array with the split() function:

dim aryILCounties
aryILCounties = split(strILCounties, ", ")

Now you can loop through said array and do whatever you need to do.

Does that help?  If you need more info on array looping, etc. lemme know.
