Thumbs down editing old form with checkboxes

Hi everyone!
I've been given the task of building some enhancements to an existing Access application. One of the enhancements is to allow multiple checkboxes to be chosen in a subform. The subform is a simple datasheet view created by a subform query, but I'm not seeing where it limits the checkboxes to just one.

In some ways, I'm a guru with Access, in others I'm just a power-user, so any thoughts on this will be appreciated.

My version of Access is 2007, but as the file is .mdb, I'm assuming it's probably a 2003 version.

I'm comfortable with VBA, although looking thru this app has shown me some things that I've not done before, so this has been a challenge for me.

TIA for any help!!

I don't understand what you mean by limit to just one. You will have a separate check box for each field. So there will only be one.

Could you be referring to an option group?
