The value of your checkbox field should always be the same (usually "1", or "True").  What you should be changing is the inclusion of the "checked" clause.  The following checkbox field will show up as checked by default:
 
<input type="checkbox" name="veteran" value="1" checked>
 
You could control the default state with something like the following:
 
<input type="checkbox" name="veteran" value="1" <%=IIF(Request.Form('veteran') = '1', 'checked', '')%>>

In my appliication a user selects one or more checkboxes for processing. When the button is pressed the same page is reloaded and checks to see if the processing button was checked. It it was the I find out which boxes were checked and use their values in a parameteritized view. When the page writes with the results I would like the boxes that were checked to remain checked. So, how to I recheck the chosen boxes please? here is th ecode I have.
