> if you want a checkbox to have a check if certain conditions are met and you don't want Users to be able to change this checkbox, then a calculation is the way to go.
It's only me using the DB. And it's simply to automate a function (checking the other boxes when a certain box is checked) that I now have to do by hand (and sometimes forget).
> Redraw your checkbox field so only the box shows. You don't need the 'Y' to show - checked always means yes!
Yeah, that's the part I'm good at <s>.
> If you could explain exactly how this checkbox will be used, we might be able to give other ideas
This now applies to 2 databases I'm using for my business, and in each case it's the same: When one box is checked, I want that to automatically trigger checking another box(es) (or in one case, changing a radio button field).
> but try it ... I think you'll find a calculation may be what you're looking for.
I will try it, thank you, following your instructions above.
And if you have any other ideas of how this might be accomplished...I'd love to hear them.
