    i created a couple sets of Options Buttons from the Forms category (NOT the Control Toolbox). Options buttons are like radio buttons.

    in any case, let's say i have 4 buttons, but i want them grouped in 2 sets of 2 buttons each. so if i have buttons 1 & 2 in a set and 3 & 4 in the other set.

    how do i group 1 & 2 together and 3 & 4 together? i want it so that if i click on 1, 2 will be unclicked, but 3 AND 4 remain as is. conversely, if i click on 4, 3 is unclicked, but 1 and 2 remain as is.

    i tried to right click and GROUP, but the GROUP selection is disabled (i.e., greyed out). please offer help! thanks in advance.

    Hi
    Place each group of buttons in a seperate frame found on your form toolbox.

    Get rid of the frame caption if you want

    K?

    I think it's called a groupbox if you are using the tools on your worksheet menu bar

    thanks tstom. the groupbox works. i had done the same type of thing a while ago and when i re-visted that file, it looked like i had just put a border around the buttons; i guess i didn't look at it carefully enough. when i re-visited the old file a second time, lo & behold, there was a group box. thanks for the help!
