    I believe you are correct sir,
    This has been the best work around I have been able to find

    "I'm not really up on 2010 yet...

    I know in the past, Access only had the one sized check box. You could raise
    the label control font, but the checkbox size was unchangeable.

    If that's really still true in 2010... then I would suggest...

    In order to make a bigger one, you needed to "grow your own" using a rectangle control, and a
    text control inside that "box" that would display " " or "X", in an appropriate font size for the
    box, and "toggling" between the 2 text values as the box was clicked each time.

    (Dixieland font Chr(51) or Chr(52) yield a check mark if you want that.)
