    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can use Radio Buttons instead of Check Boxes.  Use the following code:

    <input name="Shift" type="radio" value="Day" /> Day Shift <br />
    <input name="Shift" type="radio" value="Evening" /> Evening Shift

    instead of
    <input name="Day Shift" type="checkbox" />Day Shift<br />

    <input name="Evening Shift" type="checkbox" />Evening Shift</td>

    You may find some more information in this tutorial.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any other assistance.

    Thank you
    I changed all to radio buttons but it appears unless I use your application to create the grid, the user selected data is not captured.
    The html code produced a table as needed but the html was input using the Power Tools Free Text (HTML) tool you provide.
    It seems as though each row in the table should store and report a unique value selected for each row. As it is now, the entire tab does not produce any data when testing.
    How can this be resolved?
    If your application has a tool that allowed for developing this grid, I assume the data would be stored and reported.
    Please advise.
    Thank you

    When you need such a custom form structure, the best solution is to create a working form on JotForm with just the questions. Then copy the full form source code to your web site, and then make it look like that using a full HTML editor such as DreamWeaver. 

    Here is how you can get full source code. Open your form on the Form Builder:

    1. Open "Setup & Embed" tab on toolbar,

    2. Click on "Embed Form"

    3. Click on "Source" and copy the HTML code provided to your web site..
