Hi experts,

I have two checkboxes on my form. When the first one is selected i wanna deselect the other one.
My code does that but only when I click second time on the first checkbox. Any ideas y?

Private Sub EmptyDate_AfterUpdate()
    If Me.EmptyDate.Value = 0 And Me.JustEmpty.Value = -1 Then
        Me.EmptyDate.Value = -1
        Me.JustEmpty.Value = 0
    End If
End Sub

If you only want one selected at any given time you should be using option buttons.

However -

Private Sub JustEmpty_Click()
    If JustEmpty.Value = vbChecked Then EmptyDate.Value = vbUnchecked
End Sub

Private Sub EmptyDate_Click()
    If EmptyDate.Value = vbChecked Then JustEmpty.Value = vbUnchecked
End Sub

If I read your question correctly.

Are they being loaded with values on startup?  Such as both being checked when the form loads?
You will need to add code on the form load to ensure only one is checked.

They are both not checked when the form loads. Well, I guess I'll go with option boxes. Thanks, anyways.
