>(checkbox) Lollipops
>(checkbox) Candy bar
>(checkbox) Popcorn
>When a person clicks on a checkbox, I want to have their information emailed to five different email addresses....For example, if a user clicks on the lollipop checkbox, the back-end programming will send his/her information to five different email addresses (these email addresses are companies that sell the lollipops).
>I was told the other day that I am going to need an IF statement?? The IF statement would say (in my laymens terms):
There are several ways to do this
>If a user clicks on this checkbox, email their information to 5 email addresses. If the user has NOT clicked on the checkbox, do NOT send the informatin to the 5 email addresses.
>Does anyone have the programming knowledge that could share with me the actual coding needed to make this IF statement work (if that is in fact what I use)? What would be needed in the script and what would be needed in the HTML source code.

What are you running this script on? A lot depends on what tools you have available,
and what your ISP will let you do, versus what you have to do on your own computer. Do they
have any kind of a database engine running (MySQL, for example) or do you have to provide all your
own stuff, including database capability?
