I'm using the following code in an afterupdate event of a checkbox on a form.  In either case when I check or uncheck the checkbox the msgbox returns a "0".  What is wrong with the code?

Private Sub chkboxTurnOffEmailAlerts_AfterUpdate()

Dim myEmailAlert As Integer

    If Me.chkboxTurnOffEmailAlerts = True Then
        TempVars.Add "myEmailAlert", Me.chkboxTurnOffEmailAlerts.Value
        MsgBox myEmailAlert
    End If
    
    If Me.chkboxTurnOffEmailAlerts = False Then
        TempVars.Remove "myEmailAlert"
        MsgBox myEmailAlert
    End If

End Sub

what about if you do this

Private Sub chkboxTurnOffEmailAlerts_AfterUpdate()

Dim myEmailAlert As Integer

    If Me.chkboxTurnOffEmailAlerts = True Then
        TempVars.Add "myEmailAlert", Me.chkboxTurnOffEmailAlerts.Value
        MsgBox myEmailAlert
 
        Else
 
        TempVars.Remove "myEmailAlert"
        MsgBox myEmailAlert
    End If

End Sub

I don't think you want to make the tempvar appear and disappear.  You want to declare it and then set its value to true or false.  If you use the tempvar later in code and it isn't instantiated, you will get a runtime error.

try using the click event of the checkbox

Private Sub chkboxTurnOffEmailAlerts_Click()
Dim myEmailAlert As Integer

    If Me.chkboxTurnOffEmailAlerts = True Then
        TempVars.Add "myEmailAlert", Me.chkboxTurnOffEmailAlerts.Value

        MsgBox TempVars!myEmailAlert
 
        Else
 
        TempVars.Remove "myEmailAlert"
        MsgBox Nz(TempVars!myEmailAlert, 0)
    End If
End Sub
