    Rob,
    Off the top of my head, you have to have each check box relate back to a separate field. It sounds like what you have now is an option group, where they have several options, but can only check one because you're related to only one field. You'll need 12 fields.

    Did you create the check boxes with the Option Group Wizard, as part of an option group? In that case, they will be mutually exclusive. To make them act independently of each other, select them, cut them and paste them outside the frame of the option group.
