How to allow users to choose multiple options or checkboxes?

You were kind enough to show me how to create dropdowns on the form. Is there a way to show this as multiple checkboxes?

The options with the selected box would be recorded in the database

Based on your question, It sounds like you want your users to be able to choose multiple options from a lookup or dropdown.

From a UI perspective, the difference between a simple and multi-select lookup seems minor. In reality, the difference is quite significant because you are no longer storing a single data point. Therefore you need to create a separate table to store all of the connections between your current table and the lookup table. This connecting table is called an associate table.
