Check Box - Select All

I have a field that is populated by a check box set;
it contains 12 items.  I need to either...

A. Select all of the checkbox items when the record is created.

B. Write a script that will check all the boxes.

I've played around with the script using Set Field.  I can get it to select one item but not multiple items. If I use multiple Set Field script steps the second overrides the first.

Any help is appreciated!

RE: Check Box - Select All

The valuelist connected to the checkboxfield is a ¶ separated list.
Your SetField() should look something like:

valueOne & ¶ &
valueTwo & ¶ &
valueThree & ¶ &
