I have a form with a checkbox and also with an attachment field.  If there is no attachment then I want the checkbox to be false.  If there IS an attachment I want the checkbox to be true.

I've tried this but it doesn't work.  The checkbox is checked no matter what.

    If IsNull(Me.picScannedIDcard) Then
        Me.chkbxHasAttachment = False
        Else
        Me.chkbxHasAttachment = True
    End If

Try this in the form on current event:
Private Sub Form_Current()
  If Len(Me.Attachment1.FileName) > 0 Then
    Me.Check1.Value = True
  Else
    Me.Check1.Value = False
  End If
End Sub

Open in new window

Just check Attachment1 and Check1 to the correct values.

It is much easier to modify the query you use as source for the form.
The attachment field is a multivalue field so use SQL similar to this:

SELECT
    *, [Attachment].[FileName] Is Not Null AS IsFileAttached
FROM
    tblYourTable;

Then bind your checkbox to IsFileAttached.
