Access Main Form Checkbox Change Value on a Change of SubForm Textbox(es)

I have a Main Form with a Checkbox among other things.  The Main Form has a SubForm.

When the Form Loads I have it test a particular tb on the Main Form
If the particular textbox is not null then the checkbox is checked (Value -1)
If the particular textbox is null or 0 then the checkbox is not checked (Value 0)

The SubForm has 3 control buttons.  What I am wanting to do is have that Main Form's checkbox set back to value of 0 IF any one of those control boxes gets clicked.

What Code could I put in the Subform's OnClick Event to accomplish this?

I put a tb in the footer of the Subform to hold a value that gets set to 0 if any of those buttons gets clicked.

The Click event code I added in the SubForms Procedures is
    Me.tbcbtn1Chg = 0

the code would be better placed in the onclick event of each of the three buttons.

Worked when I dropped the "Me."
Strange.  You shouldn't have to drop the Me. If the code is behind a subform button as described.   Pete's solution should work regardless.
