Assuming you have an Id and a Text property which you have binded to the checkbox list. Upon selection, the Id would get stored to the database.

So on page load, get the existing ids and iterate them and set the corresponding items in checkboxlist as checked.

            CheckBoxList chkList = new CheckBoxList();  // This will be the checkboxlist
            List<int> ids = new List<int>();    // Populate this list from DB
            // Iterate over this list so as to select only these fields
            ids.ForEach(id =>
                var item = chkList.Items.FindByValue(id.ToString());
                if (null != item)
                    item.Selected = true;
