Hi All
Does anyone know how I can automatically populate a data/time field when a check box is ticked? This needs to be at record level. thanks

You haven't mentioned the form you're working with, however, we'll give it a shot.

You could use the AfterUpdate event of the form's checkbox.

You could edit the current record and Update your Datefield(whatever it's called) to be the current date/time.

You may wish to look at Form controls, AfterUpdate event, and Date.

See this example site:
