Hello
I have to select the checkboxes on a HTML page through Visual Basic code  based on Access Database(Located on my C drive) .HTML page is displayed in Visual Basic's Webbrowser control.Now 10 checboxes are displayed at one time.Each text box has a name exactly equal to the values in my database table.Database contains values of many students but I want to check those checkboxes which have the Name equal to ID of my students(There is a mixed data of all students).
Help me so that I can check those check boxes whose Name is exactly equal to my Students ID.
I tried this but failed.
Dim doc as HTMDocument
Private Sub Check_Click()
While Not adors.EOF
'it will create error if checkbox not found
doc.frm.adors.Fields("St_No").checked=True
Wend
End Sub
Waiting for quick responce.

change

doc.frm.adors.Fields("St_No").checked=True

to

GetControl(doc.frm.adors.Fields("St_No").value).checked=true

then add a function

Function GetControl(WhatControlName as string) as checkbox
  for each c in me.controls
    if lcase(c.name)=lcase(whatControlName) then
      set GetControl=c
      exit function
    end if
  next
end function
