I have a checkbox on a form labeled "Lock Record".  The user will use this checkbox to lock the data on the form so users can't change anything.  I'm trying the following code  which doesn't work because obviously the checkbox is locked so the user can't UNlock the data which they need to be able to do.  There must be a better way/

    If Me.chkbxFormLocked = True Then
        Me.AllowAdditions = False
        Me.AllowDeletions = False
        Me.AllowEdits = False
        Me.cmdAddRecord.Enabled = False
        Me.chkbxFormLocked.Enabled = True
    End If
