Arrowthorne,
Assume you have 3 option buttons named optSearch, optGenerate, optRandom , coresponding to 3 forms named: frmSearch, frmGenerate, frmRandom,
Now you drop a command button name cmdOpen.  in the cmdOpen_click Event, add:
On error goto trap

'Hide (or Unload) previously loaded form
frmSearch.Hide
frmGenerate.Hide
frmRandom.Hide

If optSearch.Value = True then  frmSerch.Show
If optGenerate.Value = True then  frmGenerate.Show          
If optRandom.Value = True then  frmRandom.Show
     
Exit sub
Trap:
Err.clear
Resume Next


You can also put the option buttons to a control array.
so you would have optOpen (0), optOpen (1)  optOpen(2)
 
Then you can add the code in the optOpen_click event:

On error goto trap
'Hide (or Unload) previously loaded form
frmSearch.Hide
frmGenerate.Hide
frmRandom.Hide

Select Case Index
     Case 0
            frmSerch.Show
     Case 1
            frmGenerate.Show      
     Case 2    
            frmRandom.Show
     End Select
     
Exit sub
Trap:
Err.clear
Resume Next
