    Check Boxes (Word 2000)

    Unable to link check boxes. Trying to set it up so when one check box is checked it unchecks other check boxes.

    Re: Check Boxes (Word 2000)

    Are they Form Field checkboxes?

    Attach a macro on exit from the first:

    <pre>Sub ClearCheck()
    If ActiveDocument.FormFields("Check1").Result = 0 Then
    ActiveDocument.FormFields("Check2").Result = 0
    End If
    End Sub</pre>

    Tried working with a macro, but forgot to mention that I have to lock the document which doesn't allow me to edit the check boxes. Macro kicks out on me when it hits the first check box.

    The document MUST be in forms mode.
    The properties of the check boxes are set within an unlocked form.

    Attach a macro on exit from the first:

    Sub ClearCheck()
    If ActiveDocument.FormFields("Check1").Result = 1
    Then ActiveDocument.FormFields("Check2").Result = 0
    End If
    End Sub

    The above is different that the other posted. This one works for me.
