Process order lines selected in a subform

I have an "order "form with "Item_Order_Line" as a subform.

I have an invoice button on the order form to start a create invoice process. On the Item_Order_Line subform I have tick boxes against each line.

I want the invoice button to select the lines  which have been ticked (unbound tickbox) - so I can fill them with an invoice number. I have written the following code to first check if any have been ticked, but it just gets stuck in a loop. Is this because I cannot loop through screen rows or is the "do while " wrong?

If I should be using a recordset how do I recognise the selected lines - they have just been ticked (and the tick not saved anywhere).

'Check if any lines were selected for invoicing
    Dim linesq As Boolean
    linesq = False
    Do While Item_Order_Line.Form.NewRecord = False
       If Item_Order_Line.Form!InvMe = True Then
        linesq = True
       Exit Do
       End If
    If linesq = False Then
   MsgBox "Please select item(s) to invoice.", 0 + 64
  End If

Please help - ASAP please!
