How update all records in a subform

I have a main form that has a checkbox and the onclick event of the checkbox is:

    If Me.chkbxGrowDay1Selected = True Then
       Forms!frmPlanted!subfrmReady.Form!txtReadyDate = Me.txtplantdate + Me.txtGrowDaysCalc
    End If

But when the checkbox is clicked only the first record in the subform on the main form is updated.  I need all records in the subform to update.

How do I get that to happen?  It's almost like it has to loop through the records in the subform but I don't know how to make that happen.

Either:

1. Execute an update query and then requery the form

or

2. Loop through the forms records:

 Dim rst as DAO.Recordset

Set rst = Me.RecordsetClone

If rst.Recordcount > 0 then
   rst.MoveFirst
   
   Do until rst.Eof
        ' do something
   Loop
End if

Set rst = nothing
