Hi

I have a very basic access database which records some records that we hold in a file cabinet.  The database is about 2000 records and I need to add a check box field to it.  This I have done with no problems, however, when I check the box it checks it for all records instead of the current record only?  How can I configure the check box so that when it is selected it only affects the current record?

Thanks

Sounds like you have an Unbound checkbox.  Make sure that the ControlSource property of the checkbox is set to the field that you added.
