Check all check boxes in a continuous form

Hello Everyone,

I need help checking all check boxes in a continuous form.

This form has filtered data from its table. I want to be able to set
all check boxes within the form to TRUE but only for the records
reflected on the form, not the whole table.

Please help!!!

Danny

Records (rows of data) in Access are stored in tables, not forms.

If you are saying you need to update all the rows in a table (by checking 
one/more checkboxes), use an update query.  CAUTION:  save a backup copy 
before performing the update!

Use an Update query, using the same criteria as that used for the form's
recordsource.

Sorting Items in a Combo Box...
I have a Combo Box that is sub-classed. I want the items in the list to be sorted by the lParam of the item and then alphabetically (upper and lower case separately). The dialog control being sub-classed has the Sort property set to true, but it isn't sorting them, or if it is, it is doing so in reverse of what I want. For example, the list contains "r, D, .s, .., and ." which is the order is displays them in from top to bottom, but I want the reverse ("., .., .s, D, r"). I tried setting up the CompareItem(), but it doesn't seem to be called. FWIW: - The Co...

Easiest way to create forms with Excel?
Hi all - apologies if this is a FAQ question, was unable to find good answers there. My organization often needs to distribute various 'forms' designed in Excel. People will fill them in, (often print a copy and) send the filled-in sheets back to us. There are a lot of problems with this: people will modify stuff where they're not supposed to, will leave 'mandatory' options blank, and the process of copying/pasting data for further processing once we get the filled in sheet is laborious. For various reasons we need to stay with Excel (i.e. Access, or redoing everything a...

Printing Checks
I'm having a problem printing checks from Money 2003. I have three accounts that come up in one .mny file. Two of the accounts use 3-on-a-page checks and I want the name and address printed on them.

why can't i type in plain text control boxes?
I am building a template in Word 2007. In the content controls I have the option of using rich text or plain text. When I choose the plain text and protect the document to filling in forms I can not type in the content control box. Yet when I use Rich text I can't tab over to the next content control box as it tabs within the control box. All I want to be able to do is type in the control box and be able to tab to the next. Did you by any chance set the text controls so they cannot be edited? Undo that and you should be able to tab from text control to text control with ...
