This code will loop through the controls on you form and if they are a combo box/textbox/option and contain no data then display a message box. for the option button it checks whether it has been selected.

hope it helps

Dim ctl As Control
Dim blnError As Boolean
Dim strErrMessage As String

strErrMessage = "Please fill in these fields" & vbCrLf



For Each ctl In Form1
       
        If ctl.Enabled = True Then
        If (TypeOf ctl Is TextBox) Then
           If ctl.Text = "" Then
               strErrMessage = strErrMessage + ctl.Name & vbCrLf
               blnError = True
           End If
        End If
        If (TypeOf ctl Is ComboBox) Then
          If ctl.Text = "" Then
               strErrMessage = strErrMessage + ctl.Name & vbCrLf
               blnError = True
           End If
        End If
        If (TypeOf ctl Is OptionButton) Then
          If ctl.Value = False Then
               strErrMessage = strErrMessage + ctl.Name & vbCrLf
               blnError = True
           End If
        End If
       
        End If
 
 Next ctl


If blnError = True Then
MsgBox strErrMessage
End If
