One of your check boxes no longer exists as a guess. You can also clean up
that code a bunch...

I assume your checkboxes are from the controls toolbox? if so just cycle
through all checkboxes on worksheet, this may work for you:

Sub ClearFields()
Dim bx As msforms.CheckBox

For Each obj In Sheets("Sheet1").OLEObjects
If TypeOf obj.Object Is msforms.CheckBox Then
Set bx = obj.Object
bx.Value = False
End If
Next

With Sheets("Sheet1")
.Range("H6:M6").ClearContents

.Range("H9:M9").ClearContents

.Range("Q6").ClearContents

Found a moment to shorten your clearcontents - think what i have done gives
same result:

Sub ClearFields()
Dim bx As msforms.CheckBox

For Each obj In Sheets("Sheet1").OLEObjects
If TypeOf obj.Object Is msforms.CheckBox Then
Set bx = obj.Object
bx.Value = False
End If
Next

With Sheets("Sheet1")

..Range("H6:M9,H10:H13,I11:M11,H15:M20,O6:Q8,O11:Q11,O15:Q15,J10,J13,O12,O16").ClearContents

End With

Sheets("Waiver Fact Sheet").Select
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-6
Sheets("Partial Rel Waivers Order Ltr").Select
ActiveWindow.ScrollWorkbookTabs Position:=xlFirst
Sheets("Index sheet").Select

End Sub

For Each obj In Sheets("Sheet1").OLEObjects
If TypeOf obj.Object Is msforms.CheckBox Then
Set bx = obj.Object
bx.Value = False
End If
Next


With Sheets("Sheet1")


..Range
("H6:M9,H10:H13,I11:M11,H15:M20,O6:Q8,O11:Q11,O15:Q15,J10,J13,O12,O16­").ClearContents

Two reasons maybe:

1 - your checkboxes are not on the sheet named "sheet1"

and or

2 - your checkboxes are from the forms toolbar

I have added some additional code to cover checkboxes from forms toolbar but
do check code is refering to correct worksheet.

Sub ClearFields()
Dim bx As msforms.CheckBox


For Each obj In Sheets("Sheet1").OLEObjects
If TypeOf obj.Object Is msforms.CheckBox Then
Set bx = obj.Object
bx.Value = False
End If
Next


For Each chkbx In Sheets("Sheet1").CheckBoxes

chkbx.Value = xlOff

Next


With Sheets("Sheet1")



..Range("H6:M9,H10:H13,I11:M11,H15:M20,O6:Q8,O11:Q11,O15:Q15,J10,J13,O12,O16").ClearContents


End With


Sheets("Waiver Fact Sheet").Select
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-6
Sheets("Partial Rel Waivers Order Ltr").Select
ActiveWindow.ScrollWorkbookTabs Position:=xlFirst
Sheets("Index sheet").Select


End Sub
