What is the code you're using?  -1 is the same as True (or more accurately Not False)  Please ellaborate on your question.

Kelly,

You are using the option button value, which is true/false value.  You want to use the index of the option button that is marked as true.  To do this, make your option button group a control array, and set the indexes to the value you want.  To get the integer value representation of the option button, do this

public function OptionButtonValue(optgrp as object, optional nDefault as integer = -1) as integer
  dim opt as optionbutton

  optionbuttonvalue = nDefault
  for each opt in optgrp
    if opt.value then
      optionbuttonvalue = opt.index
      exit function
    end if
  next opt
end function

Hi kelly1,

Have you tried putting your calculations in variables ? This way, you only use your option buttons to indicate which variable to want in your calculations?

ex:
dim opt_var as long
opt_var = any number for calculation

if optionbutton is true then
opt_var * whatever
end if
