Read Yes No field auto filled by Karen R @ 12/14/2017
I inserted commas because I thought they meant "then" as in the IFF statements. Anyway, I followed the advice and tried the new lines like this:
Private Sub WorkTypeIDCombo_AfterUpdate()
ServiceSheet = 1
WorkTypeID = [Safety Check]
WorkTypeID = [Vehicle Service]

End Sub

This resulted in a run time error '2465' access cannot find the field''|1' referred to in your expression. I subsequently changed it completely to the actual ID numbers for Safety Check and Vehicle Service and it worked:
Private Sub WorkTypeIDCombo_AfterUpdate()

ServiceSheet = True
WorkTypeID = 6
WorkTypeID = 5

End Sub

However, I now can't select any other items in the combo box other than those mentioned above.  How do I write  if anything other than ID 5 and 6 are selected, ServiceSheet Yes/No field is false ?  Again any advice will be very much appreciated as I just can t work it out.

Read Yes No field auto filled by Karen R @ 11/28/2017
I've listened to the free tutorial for AfterUpdate and it's really helpful. It doesn't cover how to make it work for a Yes/No check box though. My combo box is WorkTypeID and when  Safety Check  or  Vehicle Service  are selected, I want the Yes/No box for ServiceSheet to be automatically ticked. In after update for WorkTypeID and ServiceSheet, I tried the following but I got an error message saying "compile error, expected end of statement". The number 1 below is meant to signify true here.
ServiceSheet=1,WorkTypeID=[Safety Check],WorkTypeID=[Vehicle Service]
Any further help will be very much appreciated.

Why have you separated the statements with commas?
Try newlines.

Hi, Just wondered if it is possible to autofill a yes/no field on a form based on the results of a combobox? I thought maybe an IFF condition in my query?  Many thanks.

You could use an AfterUpdate.
