    select multiple checkboxes in access 2003?

    I am entering data into a access fourm that has multiple collumns with checkboxes. Is it possible to select or hightlight them all and check them off or on at the same time?

    Changing the fourm codeing/design is not really an option but if its the only way to do this let me know.

    AFAIK you have to select each one separately. If they are in sequence then I would think the tab key and the space bar would make fast work of them.

    I don't know a UI way either. One code option:

      Dim ctl As Control
      For Each ctl In Me.Controls  
        Select Case ctl.ControlType
          Case acCheckBox
            ctl = True
        End Select
      Next ctl
