I have this code in an onclick event of a command button on a form but it isn't working.  In a test record all three checkboxes are true.  Clicking the command button should change them to false.

    If Me.chkbxEmailList = True And Me.chkbxMailingLabel = True And Me.chkbxFaxList = True Then
        Me.chkbxEmailList = False
        Me.chkbxMailingLabel = False
        Me.chkbxFaxList = False
    End If

Open in new window


Why wouldn't this be working?

I'd set breakpoints on lines 1 through 4, when the debugger comes up, hover over the values variables in the if line and see if they are indeed true for all 3.  Then continue the run and see if you're getting to the inside of the IF statement or if it's just skipping over.

If what I mentioned above doesn't help, are those checkbox's NAME property the same as the name of the field they are bound to?   It''s been a while, but I seem to recall a possible issue around that scenario.

If all three checkboxes are true, the code sets all three to false.  If any one of them is false, no change is made.  Is that really what you want to do?

but it isn't working.
Can you state clearly what is meant by this? (what is, or is not happening?)

Also please state when a user can click this button, ...the form may be "dirty" at the time the button is clicked.

Also, along the lines of what Pat posted...
What is the user clicks the button by mistake...? what then,...?

To be sure, this is a curious request, ...can you take a moment to explain why this logic is needed?
perhaps there is a more efficient approach...

Your code looks fine.

Try this alternative:
    If Me.chkbxEmailList And Me.chkbxMailingLabel And Me.chkbxFaxList  Then
        Me.chkbxEmailList = Not( Me.chkbxEmailList)
        Me.chkbxMailingLabel = Not(Me.chkbxMailingLabel)
        Me.chkbxFaxList = Not(Me.chkbxFaxList)
   End If

It should work.
Try inserting three lines for debugging and tell us what you see:

    Debug.Print "EmailList",  Me.chkbxEmailList
    Debug.Print "MailingLabel",  Me.chkbxMailingLabel
    Debug.Print "FaxList", Me.chkbxFaxList
    If Me.chkbxEmailList = True And Me.chkbxMailingLabel = True And Me.chkbxFaxList = True Then
        Me.chkbxEmailList = False
        Me.chkbxMailingLabel = False
        Me.chkbxFaxList = False
    End If

What I found was code that was turning them all true again when the form was re-opened.  I'll award points to all that contributed.
