CheckBox (chb)

CheckBox - This control allows the user to either select or deselect an option.


To return a checkbox or option box selection in lower case use Format(chkSelectedOnly.Value,"<").
When the checkbox is checked it has a value of True and when it is not checked it has a value of False.
Very useful when you want to give the user a choice of yes or no. On or off.
