In custom list, I have multiple entries with similar data, except one field.

When I create a new Item, I have to create new entry with the same data except one for each input.

I'll take one simple example. I have entries like these

Europe       English        Sp2007 
Europe       Spanish        Sp2007  
Europe       German         Sp2007
Europe       Italian        Sp2007
Europe       French         Sp2007
Europe       Portuguese     Sp2007 

As of now, I have to create multiple newt for inputting this information. I know about datasheet view but that is not the point.

Is it possible to have multiple input entries based on number of checkboxes I select.

Lets say, for new entry(Continent), I input Europe. In checkboxes I select all above languages and click ok. It should be able to create six new entries with different languages.

If I select Spanish and Portuguese only(from checkboxes), then it should create only two items with two lang.

South America     Spanish     Sp2007
South America     Portuguese  SP2007

Thanks for your time.

You can't do this out of the box.

My solution would be to create a webpart that has input fields for your columns and a collection of checkboxes and then creates the items.
