      Help!  I'm new to database design and am stuck with an error message

      Post

           I have a check box field in my layout called Current Attend Date.  It lists a date say 3/18/2013 with a check box next to it.  During data entry we check that box to indicate a student is attending classes starting on said date.  Lately, when I try to check the box I get an error message:  "This button requires field to be active.  Press tab or click field to make active."  But no matter how often I try to click or tab to the field, it doesn't activate.

           I tried Deleting the field and recreating it, but no go.  I also need this box checked so I can search the database for students attending on a certain date.

           I've learned to use this program using the tutorials which are helpful, but I don't understand the ins and outs yet.

           Thank you.
