    Hi I am totally new to Access 2007 and have only had a small experience with access 97 and 2000.

    I am creating a Data Entry Form, And i am looking for a entry field to become visible when someone ticks a Checkbox above it. Now i think i have done this a long time ago in a previous version, but my memory is not the best and for the life of me i cannot figure out how to do this.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    KSL, it is best done using VBA, place the VBA in the Check Box's After Update Event Procedure.
    The VBA will be something like this
    if me.checkbox = -1 then
    me.Fieldname.Visible = true
    Me.Fieldname.visible = False

    where checkbox is the actual name of you checkbox and Fieldname is the actaul name of the field you want to make visible.
