Update checkbox, but leave previous checkbox data intact?

Post

I'm somewhat green on filemaker pro.

I have a field that uses a checkbox with value set that contains 7 categories. Each one of my records can have checkboxes in multiple categories. 

What I want to be able to do is have a script update the category checkboxes if there is any text in a certain box. 
I've tried to use a script that if a certain field has text in it, then it would check the correct checkbox just fine, but it would remove all other previous checkboxes. Is there some way that I could leave whatever checkboxes that are already checked intact and check an additional checkbox?

Thanks!
