control with index!?

Hello experienced developer!

I have problem that makes me crazy.

If I have control (checkbox1) on form, I can read state by

But how to do it if control has index - like checkbox1(0) ??
somehow does not work.

I can't use simply checkbox1(0).value, because all control names are in DB and i use next procedure to save state of controls:


where my_recordset!ctrl_name are names of controls on form (checkbox1, checkbox2, text1,text2)

It was all OK until number of controls didn't reach 255. Now I am forced to use indexes and now
become useless. Or not?

Can anyone help me?

Thank you!
