You would need to modify this within an external HTML editor (Dreamweaver, Frontpage, Notepad, Etc.).

Right, but what do I need to change in the form to make the checkboxes line up?

I'm not 100% certain that I am understanding you completely. In order to get the check boxes to line up in a row, you would simply modify the html code we've provided by taking a table row, adding extra columns to this row, and then putting the check boxes within these new columns.

You might also try changing the question type to checkbox multi-answer.

Mr. Ladd, as you have put it, you make it sound so easy, but for us who do not really understand HTML code and only cut and past on our site, explain or give an example in HTML how to move fields next to each . Other Give a some HTML code with everything in a column then give the same code after you made changes to show you can put them side by side. I have tried everything and cannot figure it out

Have you figured this out yet? I am trying to do it too. A long list of check boxes is ridiculous.

Unfortunately, it is not really possible for me to issue a how-to of example of how this is done as all HTML editor software, page layouts, etc. are different. The basic procedure would go something like this:

1. Paste the form HTML to the site using an HTML editor.
2. Use your mouse to highlight and select the second check box and question.
3. Select Edit > Cut from the software menu.
4. Click directly after the first check box and question and select Edit > Paste from the menu.
5. Complete steps 3-4 until all the check boxes you want lined up are done.

What I did is I put in <td> Everywhere I wanted a new column. However, I really need to put the table in the table.

To insert a new table within the existing table:

1. Click into the table cell that you would like to add the table.
2. Go to the HTML view of the page.
3. Insert the following code between the opening <td> and closing </td>

Code:
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr>
    <td>This is where you paste the checkbox code</td>
    <td>If you want an additional columns, you would add this line</td>
  </tr>
</table>


Hopefully this helps.
