4 Checkboxes Selected Captions should be Displayed in Textbox

Posted on 2011-02-27
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have 4 Check Boxes in my Form, when the user selects more than one Checkbox and click on Command Button, the concatenated result of all Checkbox captions should be displayed in Textbox with "Or" in between each

If he selects only One, than Selected Checkbox caption only should be displayed without any "Or" , as he has selected only one checkbox

Below is my Code, what changes should be made to solve the above purpose,

Dim strMsg As String
    If Me.CheckBox1 Then strMsg = strMsg & CheckBox1.Caption
    If Me.CheckBox2 Then strMsg = strMsg & " Or " & CheckBox2.Caption
    If Me.CheckBox3 Then strMsg = strMsg & " Or " & CheckBox3.Caption
    If Me.CheckBox4 Then strMsg = strMsg & " Or " & CheckBox4.Caption
    If Len(strMsg) = 0 Then
        MsgBox "You should select any one value!'"
        TextBox1.Value = strMsg
    End If

Problem with the above code is, if the user selects only second Checkbox than the result displayed in the Textbox is- Or Checkbox2 Caption
