I have  some checkboxes  on the form and when I open the form, it is shaded.  Does anyone know how to unshade the checkboxes.

are they bound or unbound? if they are unbound just set their default value = false.

checkboxname.value = false

if they are bound, the make sure that they are tied to a valid field

phileoca is probably right but i have one more thought.  If you can't change the state of the checkbox when the form is runnning they make be disabled. If so, go to the properties of the checkbox and make sure:

Enabled = True
