Hi Experts,

I have a checkbox with event function IF statement.

If Me.Check604 = False Then
MsgBox ("Please complete the form")
End If

So what happen here is, a msgbox appeared and the Check604 is checked.

What code should I input to let check604 remain uncheck?

Thanks.

Where did you put that code? Try to put that code on the Close event of the form.

First of all, set the default value of the checkbox to 0. Then use the code below:

If Me.Check604 = 0 Then
MsgBox ("Please complete the form")
End If

See screenshot attached.

You want the Checkbox to be checked. If not display the message.

So put your code int the Check604_AfterUpdate event.

You may need to validate your input in forms beforeUpdate event.
