Can someone tell me why these check boxes don't work?  The macro does not seem to recognize when a check box is True?  It immediately goes to the Else condition.  This series of macros starts with the Begin macro.

BagelsCheckBox in the module is not connected to BagelsCheckBox on the userform.
It has the same name, but is another variable.

Add the userform name and it will work.
If GroceryListUserForm.BagelsCheckBox = True Then

Best to force variable declaration with Option Explicit, and you will see it when compiling.

Yes, that did the trick.  I suppose there were too many pages on the form causing the need to expressly referring to the user form.

That is not the reason.
You can have the same variable name in different subs or forms.
Each refer only to the sub they are in, unless directly specified otherwise.

That is why I suggest you use Option Explicit at the top of each module (or form) so that all variable must be declared.
Then when compiling, the not specified names will be found before runtime.
It makes coding easier, type the beginning of the name, and press Ctrl+Space, and you will get a list of possible names to use, or if only one, VBA will insert the name.
And typing errors will not result in another variable.
