Unable to print checkbox values (OL 2003)

My OL form behaves properly in email and saves multiple checkbox values when
sent. All values except the checkbox values print properly. Why can I not
get the checkbox values to print?

Wh? Because Outlook custom form printing is awful. Does nothing print at all for the check boxes? Is each one bound to an Outlook Yes/No property?

No, and I would need help with that.... in the properties I have the
checkboxes set up:

Type: Keywords
Format: Text

This was the only way I've found so far to pass on multiple values. I am
learning through trial and error.... I can usually find answers documented
somewhere out here in the ethernet. Not this time.

Thanks,

Excuse me, I didn't answer the first question. Nothing prints for the
checkbox field whatsoever. It is skipped over completely.

I do have 6 values set for possible values.... if it were not for the
requirement of a hard copy I would be finished here. :-(

I tried to start from scratch and discovered I'm not using a checkbox but a
listbox with the check option turned on. I guess I did this because I
couldn't figure out how to select multiple values with the checkbox....

I found a solution that works well for me. I created a hidden combination
field that picks up the values checked off in the listbox and then prints
them as a string.
