Please see the attached file. In reference to the boxes that are unchecked, you see that some have a green background and some have a white background. 2 Questions:
1) Why are some green and some white?
2) How do I set all unchecked boxes to have a white background?

Thanks.

that means, the check box is in Null state not -1 and not 0

try setting the Triple state property of the check box to NO

Can you post a Doc instead of DOCX?

My guess ...

You can't set the bg of a check box, at least in in A2003.

It may be that the Green ones have never been click on ...?

Also, in the table, the default value for this field is set to 0.

DatabaseMX,
I cannot post a Doc file. Maybe before I display this form, I can loop through all records and set the nulls to 0.

Maybe set the default value of the form control to false? Or as MX said initialize to false on form open:

    Dim frm As Form, ctl As Control  
    Set frm = Forms!MyForm
   
    For Each ctl In frm
            Case Is = acCheckBox
                ctl.Value = False
        End Select
    Next ctl
