Is there a shorter way of doing these? Here are just 2 of the if statements. Is there a way to concatenate the model number to form a text box name, combobox name etc etc?

If chk_16700B.Value = True Then
        model_num = "16700B"
        option_type = cmb_16700B.Value
        nummodelship = txt_S16700B.Text
        Call Shipment_Update(model_num, nummodelship, option_type)
End If
If chk_16701B.Value = True Then
        model_num = "16701B"
        nummodelship = txt_S16701B.Text
        nummodel = txt_B16701B.Text
        Call Shipment_Update(model_num, nummodelship, option_type)
End If

Please help. Thanks :)

First, use vbChecked rather than True if the chk_XXX are checkboxes....

Now, try this:

select case vbChecked
  case chk_16700B.Value
     model_num = "16700B"
   
  case chk_16701B.Value
     model_num = "16701B"

end select
if model_num <> empty then
  option_type = callbyname ( me, "cmb_" & model_num, vbGet )
  nummodelship = callbyname ( me, "txt_S" & model_num, vbGet )
  Call Shipment_Update(model_num, nummodelship, option_type)
end if

use control arrays

If chk_16700B.Value = True Then
       model_num = "16700B"
       intIndice = 0
ElseIf chk_16701B.Value = True Then
       model_num = "16701B"
       intIndice = 0
End If

option_type = cmbType(intIndice).Value
nummodelship = txtShip(intIndice).Text
nummodel = txtModel(intIndice).Text

Call Shipment_Update(model_num, nummodelship, option_type)

Control arrays would be better but you could do this:

If chk_16700B.Value = True Then
       model_num = "16700B"
End If
If chk_16701B.Value = True Then
       model_num = "16701B"
End If
option_type = Me.Controls("cmb_" & model_num).Value
nummodelship = Me.Controls("cmb_" & model_num).Text
Call Shipment_Update(model_num, nummodelship, option_type)
0

Sorry that should be:

If chk_16700B.Value = True Then
      model_num = "16700B"
End If
If chk_16701B.Value = True Then
      model_num = "16701B"
End If
option_type = Me.Controls("cmb_" & model_num).Value
nummodelship = Me.Controls("txt_" & model_num).Text
Call Shipment_Update(model_num, nummodelship, option_type)

USing a Control Array....

Create two control Arrays, One for the check boxes and one for the textboxes.
Use the Tag prioperty of the checkboxes to store the model number.
The Value property stores the Option_Type.
Make the indexs for the TextBoxes match their corresponding Check boxes and the following code will update your variables when the option button is clicked

Sub chkModel_Click(Index as Integer)
    Model_Num = chkModel(Index).Tag ' Stores Model Number
    Option_Type = chkModel(Index).Value
    NumModelShip = txtShip(Index).Text ' Same Indexes as Model
End Sub

Then in your original Code

Call Shipment_Update(model_num, nummodelship, option_type)
