The standard way is to use an If statement.

How is the checkbox connected to your database?

a bit type is essentially a 'bool'.  If you're using ADO and you have a recordset, just do something like this:

rs!SQLCheckedField = (MyCheckBox.Value = vbChecked)

We'll probably need more details about how you're working with your database, though.

I do this frequently, so I have a few routines I like to make it simple with these you do

rs!SQLCheckedField = IntToBool(MyCheckBox.Value)

or visa versa

MyCheckBox.Value = BoolToInt(rs!SQLCheckedField)


Public Function BoolToInt(bitfield As Variant) As Integer
    'return vbchecked or unchecked based on bitfield
    If IsNull(bitfield) Then
        BoolToInt = vbGrayed 'I use null to indicate neither checked nor unchecked, aka unknown
    ElseIf bitfield Then
        BoolToInt = vbchecked
    Else
        BoolToInt = vbUnchecked
    End If
End Function

Public Function IntToBool(checkfield As Integer) As Boolean
    If checkfield <> 0 Then
        IntToBool = True
    Else
        IntToBool = False
    End If
End Function
