Option Button problem

I have 4 Option Buttons from the Forms Control.

When I try to set the Cell Link for one of them, they all take on that link. I currently do not have a Group box around them.

In fact I do what to Group them in pairs of 2. One group linked to one cell and the other group to a different cell.

I have tried that too. They all take on the same link. I don't think I can Group yet until I can figure out what is causing the 4 to link together.

Does anybody know what is happening?

You answered your own question, didn't you?

Put two in one group box, and two in another.

That's the problem I have.

They were in 2 different Group Boxes but were still linking to the same cell. Even though the 2 Groups are in different columns, which I think doesn't even matter.

I set one group to M58 but all buttons take on that cell. Secound group should be M60. When I set 2nd group to that, 1st group changes also. :confused:

Start from scratch.

Add a group box and put two option buttons in it.

Select either option button and assign the linked cell

Repeat.

Exactly what I just finished doing along with saving and closeing first. Got it to work now.

Don't know why it didn't link correctly before. Thanks for your time though. ;)
