Set the check box's 'Value' property to one of the following:

Check1.Value = vbUnchecked ' 0
Check1.Value = vbChecked   ' 1
Check1.Value = vbGrayed    ' 2

I hope this is what you want.

I knew that i can change the value per code.
I want the 3 states change automatic by clicking on the checkbox.

That won't work as the CLICK event is disable when the box is greyed. If you try to do something like:

sub Check1_Click()
temp = check1.value
temp = temp + 1
check1.value = temp mod 3
end sub

It'll crap out when temp = 2 as the CLICK event stops firing.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

With this code i create a newer ending loop.
Because the line check.value = x send the click event again

You'll need to maintain a separate (static) value to keep track of what the checkbox should be.  Also, you'll need a way to prevent a NEL.

Here ya go:
Private Sub Check1_Click()
  Static nValue  As Integer
  Static bHereAlready As Boolean
 
  If bHereAlready Then Exit Sub
  bHereAlready = True
 
  nValue = nValue + 1
  If nValue > 2 Then nValue = 0
  Check1.Value = nValue
  bHereAlready = False
End Sub
