Hi all i got a form with many checkboxes and i want to pass checkbox varaibles to a new page using post method but the problem is that each time the first variable get pasted .Beleow u see part of php code that recives the passed variables. When i run this script by selecting 3 check boxes which has values :1 first check box, 2 second checkbox and 3 3th checbox. i get this

select filename,title from wimpy where id=1

instead of

select filename,title from wimpy where id=1 OR id=2 OR id=3

I be happy if an expert help me fix this problem and be able to pass all values of check box to second page and be able to buil query such :
select filename,title from wimpy where id=1 OR id=2 OR id=3
Thanks

part of check box form code:
Code:
<form method="POST" action="./playlist.php"  name="mp3Play">
...
...
...
playlist.php code
Code:
<?php

//echo $_POST['id']; 

$user = "root";
$pw = "";
$db = "mp3sversion5";
$mysql_access = mysql_connect("localhost", $user, $pw);
mysql_select_db($db, $mysql_access);


[B]if (isset($_POST['Id'])) {
    $fragments = explode(',',$_POST['Id']);
    $loopCount = sizeof($fragments);
    for ($loop = 0; $loop < $loopCount; $loop++) {
        if ($where != '') $where .= ' OR';
        $where .= ' id='.$fragments[$loop].' ';
    }[/B]}
$query = "select filename,title from wimpy where $where";

[B]echo $query;[/B]

[B]$result = mysql_query($query);[/B]

if the checkboxes have the same name ("POSTID") then they are posted as a concatenated string with comma's as the delimeter, like so. 1,3,6,29,93 and so on and so on. If MySQL supports the "IN" keyword (and I'm sure it does), you won't need to do that, just do:
$query = "select filename,title from wimpy where id IN($_POST['Id'])";

PHP isn't my language so I'm taking a pot shot at the syntax...

$query = "select * from files where id IN(" + $_POST['Id']+ ")";

Code:
Fatal error: Unsupported operand types in file.php on line 18

and pointing to the same line where the query is !!:-(
