Hi All,

Please see the attached MS Access 2007 database.  In my “main” table, I chose yes/no for data type.  When I bring these fields into the form the check box is filled and will not toggle with a check mark.

Please help
Thanks

The reason you can't use the checkboxes is because of the relationship you established between the two tables. You're using an autonumber in your table which isn't generated until a record is entered, so the number in your main table isn't matching the one in the Ethnicty table. I added a new field to that table and related it to the ID of the main table. On the form there's a text box that has it's default value set to the main id. See attached.
