    You could just remove that column from your table, and then re-add it
    with the same name and properties.

    That would set all the check boxes back to "Unchecked"

    If it's one field on multiple records... (usually what is considered a 'column')
    ex.
    Name MaritalStatus
    J Smith X
    R Jones
    G Brown X
    H Ford
    then run an Update query against the table, setting all that fields checkboxes to False.
    Criteria the Update query for ALL records or a specific record, as you require.

    If each check field is an individual field in your table
    J Jones Marital X
    OwnHome X
    Veteran
    GED
    Over 50 X
    then you'll have to manually code the False against each different field.
    Marital = False
    OwnHome = False
    Veteran = False etc....

    Use an update query.
    Go to the query tab. Select new and design mode.
    Add the table.
    Add the (check box) field you need to update to the query.
    From the Query menu, select Update Query.
    In the box next to Update To:
    enter....
    False
    Click the red ! exclamation point on the toolbar at the top to run the query.
