Word Check Box Field Value

Word Check Box Field Value

Word Check Box Field Value

I have created a form that includes calculations. I need to be able to test a check box field value (i.e. true or false, 0 or 1)to include in an If formula. For example,
{If (check1 = true, {=text1*3}, {=text1*2})}
The If statement works by checking the value of a text field or a dropdown field presumably because there is actual text to compare:
({If (text1 = "Yes", {=text1*3}, {=text1*2})})
I'm not sure why I can't get the check box field value to work. Any thoughts?

RE: Word Check Box Field Value

I little known fact about VBA is
True = Yes = -1
False = No = 0

Try any of these to see it that will work.

In Access and VB you refer to a Checkbox like so

IF Check1.Value = -1 then
' The check box is checked
ElseIf Check1.Value = 0 then
' Not checked
End IF

Not sure if Word is the same way.
