I have a form that I have attached here that we will call Form1. On this form I can check the assigned checkbox or uncheck it. I also have a second form that is open that I call Form2

I need to add an action that does the following

onExit
if Forms!Form2!txtField1 is null

unselect all the "Assigned" checkboxes on Form1

Else
Just leave the checkboxes I have selected checked as they are

I'm a bit rusty on VBA. Much appreciated
This is Form1
Form1

try using the Unload event of form2


private sub form_Unload(cancel as Integer)
on error resume next
If IsNull(Me.txtField1) then
     with forms!form1.Recordset
          do until .EOF
          .edit
          !Assigned = 0
          .update
          .moveNext
          loop
     end with
end If
end sub

Hi Capricorn,
Thanks for your help.

one tiny problem.

lets say I have checked
record1
record2
record 3

when I try to close the form, if I have selected record2 for example it will uncheck everything starting at record2, so the record 1 will still be selected and assiged.

is there a way I can add some code to start at the begining of the form and not at the record I have selected?

thanks again, this has beeen very helpful

revise the codes

private sub form_Unload(cancel as Integer)
on error resume next
If IsNull(Me.txtField1) then
     with forms!form1.Recordset
         
          .movefirst      'add this line

          do until .EOF
          .edit
          !Assigned = 0
          .update
          .moveNext
          loop
     end with
end If
