And that is what the code in the class does.

You are entirely correct, John.  You couldn't check/uncheck the checkbox in
the usual way, as it is a calculated control.  If you wanted to do this,
using the "old-fashioned" method, one way would be code something like this
on the Enter event of the checkbox control:

    If Me.NameOfCheckbox Then
       Me.YourDateField = Null
       Me.YourDateField = Date
    End If
