Enabling / disabling functions

P: n/a
Is it possible to enable and disable check box of active record using a
continuous form?

The problem with what I have done is if user entered multiple records,
then clicked 1st option box, all the check box of all records were then
enabled, and user can click on check box.

This is how it should work:
When you enter a new record and click an option box (for example 1),
then the check box only for that record should be enabled. If the
option box that was clicked is not 1 then the check box of that record
should be disabled.

May I assume the checkbox is NOT bound to a field in the table? Either
make the checkbox part of the table (Yes/No) field or move it outside of
the continuous form.

you cant alter objects on just the one selected form detail section. In
continuous forms, if you change something about a control (not the
data), the change will cascade to all instances of the control - not
just the currently selected one. ( Which is unfortunate, because there
were times I really wanted to do a nice stripped effect across multiple
records :( )

you could place the control on the form header / footer - that way
there will only ever be one instance of the control so it wouldnt
matter.
