"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

  Not sure I understand the question.  If you have an option group, you simply refer to the group control:

  Me.<name of my group control>

  To get it's value.

Jim Dettman (Microsoft MVP/ EE MVE)President / OwnerCommented:

  and to be clear, you replace everything in the <> with the actual name of the control.  For example, if the control was named grpReportType, then you'd use:

  If Me.grpReportType = 3 then
    ' do this report
  ElseIf Me.grpReportType = 2 then
    ' do that report
     MsgBox "Invalid report type"
  End If

  An alternative to the above would be to use a Select CASE statement

  Select Case grpReportType

  Case 3
     ' do this report
  Case 2
     ' do that report
  Case Else
     MsgBox "Invalid report type"
  End Select
