Why is Conditional Formatting not working on the last two items?

I have a table and a form that I attached which is all part of the actual problem.

The last two text boxes on the form "Selecte8" and "Select9" are not being affected by Conditional formatting when the check box is checked?

I have tried replacing bothe the form and tyable and still have the same problem

The names of the last two checkboxes are not consistent with how your other checkboxes are named.  Check them and you'll see why.

Having said that, adding fields to a table in order to mark a checkbox as selected is BAD DESIGN!  You can easily accomplish the same thing by adding a textbox to your form with the following expression:
=IIf([ProActive Analysis],"Selected","")

I would also venture to say that your table is not well designed.  You would do well to read up on Relational Databases and design your tables accordingly.  Otherwise, you are asking for a mountain of problems to surface later on when the scope of your database grows.

Here are a couple of videos you should take some time to view:

You misunderstood me.  I said the name of the Checkboxes, not the name of the field.

As commented by IrogSinta, you need to redesign the database.

Check the attached modified database for the first check box which colors the label red when selected and black if not. See if you can make use of it.

If you need the selected text to show you may apply what  IrogSinta suggested. I added that to the first check box.

The label color, needs to be checked at open event.
The selected text works all the time.
