To do this, you need a script object, the script object will hold a function which you can call from anywhere in the form.

The function needs 2 parameters :

1. The subform / table, the object that will hold all the fields that you want to change active / inactive

2. True or false, true if you want to set the fields inactive, false if you want to set the fields active

After creating the script object, insert this function inside of it, in my case the script object's name is objAccess

in the checkbox event change, you can enter this script :

Hope this will help
