Auto Check Boxes from Pull Down Selection

Auto Check Boxes from Pull Down Selection

Auto Check Boxes from Pull Down Selection

I am trying to get a group of check boxes to auto populate when I select an option from a drop down menu.  There will be several drop down menu's and each on should affect the check boxes.  
Example.  3 check boxes.  Check box a b and c.  Pull down menu with Choice 1 2 3 4 5 6 etc.  If 1 is selected check box a get checked.  if 2 is selected the check box a and b are selected.  If on drop down has choise 1 selected and another drop down has choice 2 selected then check box a and b will be selected. (Choice 1's a and choice 2's a and b).

Am I being detailed enough?  How would I pull this off.

RE: Auto Check Boxes from Pull Down Selection

Hi CecilXavier

I don't think you can do calculations with check boxes.
But you can fake it by using a text field with a border around it.
Using Zapf Dingbat 3 will give you a ✔ (check mark).
You can use nearly the same calculations you used with CHALEV.
Except you will have to find the script for  if/and statements, which you might be able to google.
Your problem is that you will have to write it so that no 2 statements are true or that will give you a false output.
What is the reason for doing this?
