I don't believe that checkbox background colors can be changed at all. You could however put a label underneath the checkbox and change the label's color based on an event. You would just need to bring the checkbox to the from to make sure it's on top of the label.

Changing the label's color would be:

Me.LabelName.BackColor = 10079487 ' Numeric value to indicate the color

I agree with perkc.

You could also go as far as using a label with a bolded X as the checkbox, which toggles the checkbox that would be hidden underneath.

It could be as simple as:

Private Sub label1_Click()
Select Case Me.checkbox
Case True
Me.label1.Caption = "X"
Me.label1.Forecolor = vbGreen
Case False
Me.label1.Caption = ""
Me.lbl1.Forecolor = vbRed
End Select
End Sub

Or, to make it simplier, just use the red and green for off and on, and forget about the label's caption of "X". It would look pretty good too.
