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 ?

    Check1 = vbChecked
    Check2 = vbChecked

    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.

    This link might give you some ideas. Download the database and take a look at the form and code:

    You should be able to solve your problem using a similar technique, a combination of a record number function that uses a recordset clone, and the SelTop function.
