Adding Checkboxlist/checkbox to dataGrid and retrieving selected value

Hello to the community,

I am hoping someone will correct me and help me with thisunderstanding my problem. I am trying to add a checkboxlist or acheckbox templatecolumn to my data grid, and would also like toretrieve the values selected and add them to the database. Thecheckbox would take on the zip codes selected. The code in thebtnAddSvcArea was obtained from a very good post here itselffrom Jeffrey Tan.
This is what I currently have:
<asp:datagrid id="dgZipCode" runat="server"BorderColor="#CC9966" BorderStyle="None" BorderWidth="1px"BackColor="White" CellPadding="4" AutoGenerateColumns="False"Width="300" ItemStyle-Wrap="false" >
<asp:checkbox runat="server" Enabled="true" id="chk1" />
<asp:BoundColumn DataField="ZipCode" />
<asp:BoundColumn DataField="City" />
<asp:BoundColumn DataField="State" />
<PagerStyle HorizontalAlign="Center" ForeColor="#330099"BackColor="#FFFFCC"></PagerStyle>

Private Sub btnAddSvcArea_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal eAs System.EventArgs) Handles btnAddSvcArea.Click
Dim dgi As DataGridItem
For Each dgi In dgZipCode.Items
Dim tc As TableCell = dgi.Cells(0)

Dim c As Control
For Each c In tc.Controls
If TypeOf (c) IsSystem.Web.UI.WebControls.CheckBox Then
Dim cb As CheckBox = CType(c, CheckBox)
If cb.Checked = True Then
Me.Response.Write("The " &dgi.ItemIndex.ToString() & "th row is selected<br>")
End If
End If
End Sub

I've tried doing this:
<asp:checkbox runat="server" Enabled="true" id="<%#Container.DataItem("ZipCode") %>"/>

But i get a "server tag is not well formed" ...

Can anyone point me in the right direction for the right way ofbinding the values of zip code to the checkbox ? And alsoretrieve the values selected (which would be getting thezipcodes value since the checkboxes should have the zip codevalues).

thank you so much for your replies/help.
