I am trying to "cross out" text on a report if the user click the check box called "No".

I can't find anything on the net that does this.

Any help is appreciated

You would need to change the font.  A better Access solution would be to "gray" out the box by setting both the enabled and locked properties to false. Or by changing the foreground or background color.  You will need code in the Current event of the form to "mark" existing records as you scroll to them as well as code in the AfterUpdate event of the checkbox to toggle the settings.

You could use a RichTextBox to do this, but it'd be complicated in the extreme, and not very user friendly. Access isn't really a word processor so doing things like this is difficult (at best).

Pat's suggestions would be the way to go - just disable the control.
