MS Access: Forms / Option button won't submit data value to table

Posted on 2011-04-26

I tried the Options like you said and then when the wizard came up I went through it. The new page is “frmNewToolDataEntry2” Your Option buttons work but does not submit a value to the table “tblTools” in the inventory field.

So I tried it via your instructions and I assigned the values 1 & 2 to be stored in the table “tblTools” in the field “Inventory”. When I go live the Option buttons won’t select at all and no value is sent to the table.

It seems this should work given the options I selected in the wizard. Do you see something I missed?

    you can not use an option frame with options to be bound for different fields.

    see this
    used a box and two option buttons each bound to different fields
    * have to use vba codes in the sfterupdate event of the buttons to toggle the values, permitting only one to be true and the other false
