I am using VB6 to access a Microsoft Word template.  What I am perplexed on what to do is how to select a checkbox field as you can see from the attached image.  Currently Quarter 2 is selected.  How can I select Quarter 3.  I can bookmark the field, but I don't know the syntax for selection and checking the field.  Any help is appreciated.  

Here is some example code I am currently using in the document if that helps.

            objMSWord.Selection.TypeText "ACTIVITY: " & rec!ActivityName & " - " & rec!ActivityType & "    " & rec!ActivityOther & vbCrLf
            objMSWord.Selection.TypeText "Identified Need: " & rec!Need & "    " & rec!NeedOther & vbCrLf
            objMSWord.Selection.TypeText "Objective Addressed: " & rec!Objectives & vbCrLf
            objMSWord.Selection.TypeText "Stated Strategy: " & rec!Strategy & vbCrLf
            objMSWord.Selection.TypeText "Outcome: " & rec!Outcome & vbCrLf
            objMSWord.Selection.TypeText "Narrative Summary: " & rec!Narrative & vbCrLf
            objMSWord.Selection.TypeText "-----------------------------" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
