Just pcik it from the tools and put it there.  It does not have to be bound.

Then you can refer to it Forms!MyForm.CheckBox1


If Forms!MyForm.CheckBox1 = -1 then
do something
Endif

If you are using a continuous form, you will need to add the Checkbox as a YesNo field in your underlying table. Otherwise a selection to one checkbox changes the selection for the checkbox on all records.
