I have a form that dynamically presents the user with the required fields to be filled in on an Excel form.  When the user saves the data, I first need to validate that the required fields are populated.  First the user selects on of the options from an option group, this determines what fields are visiable.  So, how do I deterine which option was selected in the group so I can check the data controls?  I don't think what I have is the right direction (and it does not work!)
Private Sub btnSave_Click()
Dim intValue As Integer
intValue = Me.fraPortfolioGroup
Select Case intValue
    Case Me.optActivePortfolios
        If IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioCode) Or IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioName) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorSummary) Or IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorDetail) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLRatingSummary) Or IsNull(Me.txtURLRatingDetail) Then
            Call NullAddProfileMessage
                Exit Sub
    Case Me.optActiveMiscel
        If IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioCode) Or IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioName) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorSummary) Or IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorDetail) Then
            Call NullAddProfileMessage
                Exit Sub
    Case Me.optActivePortMastStats
        If IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioCode) Or IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioName) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorSummary) Then
            Call NullAddProfileMessage
                Exit Sub
    Case Me.optIndexPortfolios
        If IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioCode) Or IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioName) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorSummary) Or IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorDetail) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLRatingSummary) Or IsNull(Me.txtURLRatingDetail) Then
            Call NullAddProfileMessage
                Exit Sub
    Case Me.optIndexMiscel
        If IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioCode) Or IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioName) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorSummary) Or IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorDetail) Then
            Call NullAddProfileMessage
                Exit Sub
    Case Me.optIndexSFPortfolios
        If IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioCode) Or IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioName) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorSummary) Or IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorDetail) Then
            Call NullAddProfileMessage
                Exit Sub
    Case Me.optIndexPortMasterStats
        If IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioCode) Or IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioName) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorSummary) Then
            Call NullAddProfileMessage
                Exit Sub
End Select

End Sub

You could use a UDF like the one written by Chip Pearson here

Selected Option Button

or you could switch your Select Case statement to an If-ElseIf-Else logic like below

WC
Private Sub btnSave_Click()
Dim intValue As Integer
intValue = Me.fraPortfolioGroup
If Me.optActivePortfolios Then
        If IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioCode) Or IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioName) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorSummary) Or IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorDetail) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLRatingSummary) Or IsNull(Me.txtURLRatingDetail) Then
            Call NullAddProfileMessage
                Exit Sub
ElseIf Me.optActiveMiscel Then
        If IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioCode) Or IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioName) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorSummary) Or IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorDetail) Then
            Call NullAddProfileMessage
                Exit Sub
ElseIf Me.optActivePortMastStats Then
        If IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioCode) Or IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioName) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorSummary) Then
            Call NullAddProfileMessage
                Exit Sub
ElseIf Me.optIndexPortfolios Then
        If IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioCode) Or IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioName) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorSummary) Or IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorDetail) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLRatingSummary) Or IsNull(Me.txtURLRatingDetail) Then
            Call NullAddProfileMessage
                Exit Sub
ElseIf Me.optIndexMiscel Then
        If IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioCode) Or IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioName) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorSummary) Or IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorDetail) Then
            Call NullAddProfileMessage
                Exit Sub
ElseIf Me.optIndexSFPortfolios Then
        If IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioCode) Or IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioName) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorSummary) Or IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorDetail) Then
            Call NullAddProfileMessage
                Exit Sub
ElseIf Me.optIndexPortMasterStats Then
        If IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioCode) Or IsNull(Me.txtPortfolioName) Or _
            IsNull(Me.txtURLSectorSummary) Then
            Call NullAddProfileMessage
                Exit Sub
End If

End Sub

If I get rid of the intValue and change the IsNull to ="", your code works.  But I will also take a look at the link you provided, thank you!
