This is probably a simple question.

When I click on a value on a form where there are multiple check boxes, if I check a box (SME), I want the code to take me to another field that is a text box (other) for additional information to capture...

If it is not checked do nothing.

Clearly my code is not working.....

 Private Sub SME_Click()

If Me.SME = False Then Exit Sub
If Me.SME = True Then GoTo me.txtSME

End If
End Sub

Also,  with the if..thens on single lines, you should remove the End If.
