    Checkbox Keyboard Entry (Access 2000)

    I would like to know how I can enter a "check" in the checkbox control without using the mouse. I would like to "check" or "uncheck" a checkbox control from the keyboard so I can keep my hands moving quickly through all this data. I can't find the appropriate key combinations. The control is set to "Yes/No" if it matters. I've considered changing the field to a "Y" or an "N" in a text box. I'd prefer not to do this.
    Thank you,
    Doug

    Use the tab key to move from another field/control to the check box.
    Use the space bar to toggle the value from ticked to unticked or vice versa.
    Use tab to move on to the next field/control, or Shift+tab to return to the previous field/control.

    The spacebar. Man alive!! I knew this, I guess I just "spaced out". I kept trying ALT combinations. Thanks a lot, Hans.
