multi answer multi choice database


I'm making a survey and I have to be able to allow the surveyee to check more than one option from the multiple choice answer. I've made a single answer multiple choice answer php page behind a database, but I'm not quite sure about the multi choice option.

I'm sure I can make the php part work, but i'm not sure how I'd get both answers in the database in a neat fashion.

Any thoughts?

What's wrong with checkboxes?

Or just store the different choices as booleans in the database, and mark them as 0 if they're not chosen and 1 if they are.

I just don't know how to set it up in the database.

I have a table for the questions, possible answers, and the responses.

Will the response table take two answers?

Will the response table take two answers?

That depends on how you set it up in the database.

Like I said, on the PHP page, make the multi-answer questions check boxes instead of radio buttons and then in your database put a 1 for the choices that were selected and a 0 for the ones that aren't selected.
