phpmailer and checkboxes

Hello all, I have two bugs that I need to get fixed and your help would be greatly appreciated. First off my script works but only if zip files are not added. I fill in the form and set in a file box a zip file, hit submit and the script seems to work but none of the values go through and the zip file does not attach. The second issue is that I have eleven checkboxes with nine of them populating correctly. but when I open the fdf with the pdf two of the check boxes do not show through. All names are the same across all three files. What am I doing wrong? You can check it out at <snip>.

Here is the code for the form

<p>Fill in the form with all information possible. The date fields will be filled in when being processed.</p>
<form action="form2pdf.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" onsubmit="MM_validateForm('pname','','R','age','','RisNum','phone','','R','referredby','','R','signedby','','R','notes','','R');return document.MM_returnValue">

Here is the code for the processing script

<? //heres where the fields are added to the array for the fdf file
$data['toothteeth']=$_POST['toothteeth']; // here is the one field that is not populating. I got one of the checkboxes to populate by deleting it in the pdf and adding it back in. I did so with this one and it didnt work.
$newpname=str_replace(" ","_",$_POST['pname']);
//below is where the fdf is created.
if($fp=fopen($fdf_dir.'/'.$fdf_file, 'w')){
echo $fdf_file.' written successfully.';
} else {
die('Unable to create the file '.$fdf_dir.'/'.$fdf_file);
// Mail code using PHP Mailer
$objMail = new PHPMailer();
$objMail->From = "donotreply@example.us";
$objMail->FromName = "Do Not Reply";
$objMail->Subject = "Referral form and xrays attached";
$objMail->Body = "Hello, Here is the referral form we have sent you.";
$objMail->AddAttachment($fdf_dir.'/'.$fdf_file, $fdf_file);
// Uploading Files
$files['file1']=$fdf_file; // here is where the fdf file is added
$filename=str_replace(" ","_",$filename);
if(file_exists($add)==true) {
// Giving all permission to avoid any problem related to the attachment
// Attaching Files
$objMail->AddAttachment($add, $filename);
// Sending mail

Here is the code in the fdf file.

1 0 obj
/FDF << /Fields [ <</T(pname)/V(Jane Doe)>><</T(age)/V(23)>><</T(phone)/V(555.555.5555)>><</T(fdate)/V(01-07-2009)>><</T(referred2)/V(Dr. One)>><</T(referredby)/V(#*$!x)>><</T(develop)/V(Developing Malocclusion)>><</T(idealtx)/V(Determining Ideal Tx Time)>><</T(habit)/V(Habit Control)>><</T(toothteeth)/V(Missing Tooth or Teeth)>><</T(impactions)/V(Impaction(s))>><</T(possibleextractions)/V(Possible Extractions)>><</T(sm)/V(Space Maintenance)>><</T(tmj)/V(T.M.J.

You should add some error checking to make sure that the file was uploaded properly and that the file isn't so large that it violates the PHP upload_max_file_size or the PHP post_max_size config settings.
