Count Checkboxes which are ticked in a form/table/Column

I want to count all the checkboxes in a column which have been ticked.
I'v created a form, where the user will tick the checkbox, and then move on to the next record, now i want to get the total of the ticked checkboxes and display it on a form.

Hello Comicjoker,

is this excel? since you mention column i presume the boxes are on a sheet? then this could help

Sub CountCheckedCheckboxes()
  Dim ws As Worksheet
  Dim objOLE As OLEObject
  Dim nNumChecks As Integer

  For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
    For Each objOLE In ws.OLEObjects
      If TypeName(objOLE.Object) = "CheckBox" Then
        If objOLE.Object.Value Then nNumChecks = nNumChecks + 1
      End If
    Next objOLE
  Next ws
  MsgBox nNumChecks
End Sub

Its in Access, sorry I forgot to mention it.
then you could try a little count function like this

Public Function CheckCount(frm as Form) AS Integer
     dim ctl as control
    dim cc as integer

    for each ctl in frm.controls
        if typeof ctl is checkbox then cc=cc+1

End Function

place it in a module and call it when you need to display it on a label on your form

What I did, was create a Query, with all the check boxes marked true. Then created a form based on the query, placed an edit box and in the control source typed ( =Count(*) ) which basicaly counts all the records in the query
