IS this do able.
Use a image box as your check box and place a hidden check box beside it which is bound to your table field. size the image box to whatever you like. Set the image box 'SizeMode' to Stretch. In the click event of the Image box load in a BMP or WMF file that is your check mark (yes, you'll have to get creative).
Private Sub Image1_Click()
Dim DatabasePath As String
DatabasePath = Application.GetOption("Default Database Directory")
If Me.Image1.Picture = "(none)" Then
Me.Image1.Picture = DatabasePath & "\CHECKMRK.bmp"
Me.Check1.Value = True
Me.Image1.Picture = ""
Me.Check1.Value = False
I'll attach a check mark for ya to. Use MS Paint to change the color if you want. Using this method, you can make your check box whatever size you want and you can determine what type of check mark you want to use. You can also incorprate this method into your reports if you like.
