    Option boxes on Form (2002)

    I have two option boxes on a form. Each box has 6 choices. When the form is open and you select an option in one box -then if you change your mind , you can select another option in the same box and it changes with no problem. If you try to do the same thing in the second option box it will not let you until you click in another control box outside the option box on the form. Then you can go back and change the selection in the option box
    Can't figure out why one option box works, but not the other one.

    Hope I have explained this clear enough.

    Thanks Paul

    This doesn't appear on the surface to make much sense. I'd guess you must have some sort of code in the 2nd option group's AfterUpdate event that is causing this. Or Is it possible there is perhaps a transparent command button that is overlaying the option group?

    I thought that the After Update command was the problem so I removed all items from there. Didn't help.
    Let me go into further detail on problem.
    The form I am using actually has three tab pages on it. Each tab page has two option groups on it. On two of the pages I have the same problem. One option group will not work. On the third page the option groups work correctly. Why?
    I did try putting a requery command at the end of the click command in the option group. The option group then will work correctly but it also returns the form to the first file which I don't want.

    I realize this is getting complicated but I've run out of ideas.
    Thanks Paul

    This is indeed strange. If you can easily put this form in a separate database (and anything else needed to have the form come up correctly) and attach it to your reply, I'll take a look at it. Other than that, I don't have any ideas.

    Oh, and I'll need it converted to Access2000 format if not already.
