This validation code works fine, but I forgot to ask (this comes from a previous question):

I want to validate three textboxes, one combo box and 6 checkbox fields. This code does this fine, but now I need to mark another checkbox field IF all required fields are filled or marked AND AFTER that validation.

I've tried adding this line

Me.CheckBoxField = -1

between the For Next statements and between the IF statements, but when it goes thru the validation, it marks the field, EVEN if the fields are not filled or marked.
Private Sub abtnCommand1_Click()
 
Dim ctl As Control
 
For Each ctl In Me.Controls
    If ctl.Tag = "Req" Then
        If ctl.ControlType = acCheckBox Then
            If IsNull(ctl.Value) Or ctl.Value = 0 Then
                MsgBox "Required fields missing. Fill or check missing fields", vbCritical, "Missing fields"
                ctl.SetFocus
                Exit For
            End If
        Else
            If IsNull(ctl) Then
                MsgBox "Required fields missing. Fill or check missing fields", vbCritical, "Missing fields"
                ctl.BackColor = vbYellow
                Exit For
            End If
        End If
    End If
    
Next
 
Exit Sub
 
End Sub

Try this;
Private Sub abtnCommand1_Click()
    Dim ctl As Control, blnGood As Boolean
    blnGood = True
    For Each ctl In Me.Controls
        If ctl.Tag = "Req" Then
            If ctl.ControlType = acCheckBox Then
                If IsNull(ctl.Value) Or ctl.Value = 0 Then
                    MsgBox "Required fields missing. " & _
                       "Fill or check missing fields", vbCritical, "Missing fields"
                    ctl.SetFocus
                    blnGood = False
                    Exit For
                End If
            Else
                If IsNull(ctl) Then
                    MsgBox "Required fields missing. " & _
                        "Fill or check missing fields", vbCritical, "Missing fields"
                    ctl.BackColor = vbYellow
                    blnGood = False
                    Exit For
                End If
            End If
        End If
    Next
    If blnGood Then
        Me.CheckBoxField = True
    Else
        Me.CheckBoxField = False
