Solid checkboxes?


I am creating a database that will have different checkboxes filled in by me for each entry (from a choice of about 20 different items) for each record. Some records will have several items selected.

I really don't know what I'm doing, but kind of got it to work, using the checkbox function. It allows me to check the box on and off in the record.

BUT I'd like the box to fill in solid, not just be an "X". I think I saw instructions on how to do this in an earlier post, using two different graphic boxes somehow, I haven't tried it yet -- it sounded complicated. 

Also, once it is posted on the web, I don't want anyone else to be able to change the state (on or off) of the box. So I'm thinking I should maybe use the box tool. I'd put a line around the boxes. Then I would fill with black if it needed to be selected by me. I think this would assure that someone else could not turn off the checkbox once on the web... I'm so new at this, so there is probably a better way to do it...

Would love other ideas? Thanks!!!!
