Hello,
On a continuous Form, I put an unbound checkbox, and in the form footer I have a buttom that should print all the ticked records.
How can I tick an individualy box, with out having them all ticked ?

I just ran into that problem myself.

My workaround was to create a new field in the table the data was coming from that was a Yes/No field.  Then on my form I linked to that field and made it so that when the button in the footer is pressed, a macro opens a report that uses a query which only displays the records that are checked.  There is then a button to clear all selected, and it also clears all selected when the form is unloaded.

Hope that will work for you.
