i have a Word document with 15+ VBA Forms, and in each form about 30-50 checkboxes.
How do i clear all the Checkboxes in the Active form w/o having to write names of each Checkbox?

Checkbox1.Value = False
Checkbox2.Valuse  = False

I know i need to Loop through all the Controls in the Active Form, but i can not write it :(

Thank you,

or use TypeName instead.

For Each ctrl In Me.Controls
        Select Case TypeName(ctrl)
        Case "CheckBox"
            ctrl.Value = False
        Case "TextBox"
            ctrl.Text = ""
        End Select
