I'm a OO basic newbie, converting from MS Access. I'm familiar with using VBA in Access. I'm trying to do some simple programing. I've want to change the value in one text box depending on the value of a check box and I am having problems. I created a checkbox 'chkDebit' but when I run a msgbox 'heres value " & chkDebit, I get "heres value' but nothing else. I've tried a couple of textboxes on the form also. I'm guessing that I'm missing something like .value to acutally read whats in the box.

You will need to do some reading up to see how to refer to controls, forms, etc. MS VBA is very different in how they refer to objects (in my extremely simplified one sentence explanation).

Start here http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=50115&highlight= and try other searches on this forum.
