Grouping Radial Buttons in a form created in MS Word 2007

I have created a fillable form in MS Word 2007 that is made up of several questions..

I have several questions that I have created Radial Buttons to answer Yes and No. The reason I used Radial Buttons is so that when people fill out the forms they can't answer yes and no to the same question.

I have grouped the radial buttons together for each of the questions and I have renamed them in the properties. But when you select a radial button anywhere on the form it deselects the button previously selected on another question

How can I split the buttons for each question away form the other grouped buttons on the form.

Do I need to do some VB coding for each group? If so can you give me ideas on the code?

If you mean ActiveX Option buttons (sometimes call Radio buttons), they have a GroupName property. Use a the same name for each control in the group, but different for each group.
