Excel Debug Object Required

I need to add three buttons to an Excel form to eliminate the billing and typo errors that people are making.

Button 1 = Company 1
Button 2 = Company 2
Button 3 = Collect shipment

I added the buttons and attached a macro to each, but I keep getting the Run-time error'424' Object required.

The three macros are:

Sub BillToOptionButton1()
'
' BillToOptionButton Macro
' Macro recorded 9/12/2011 by Tosagua'

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
If OptionButton1.Value = True Then
       Range("C20").Value = " COMPANY 1 NAME."
       Range("C21").Value = " MAIL  CODE  7A"
       Range("C22").Value = " STREET  ADDRESS."
       Range("C23").Value = " CITY,  STATE  ZIP"
   End If

Application.ScreenUpdating = True
   
'
End Sub

Sub BillToOptionButton2()
'
' BillToOptionButton Macro
' Macro recorded 9/12/2011 by Tosagua
'
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
   If OptionButton2.Value = True Then
       Range("C20").Value = " COMPANY 2 NAME"
       Range("C21").Value = " C/O  ANOTHER COMPANY."
       Range("C22").Value = " STREET ADDRESS."
       Range("C23").Value = " CITY,  STATE,  ZIP"
   End If

Application.ScreenUpdating = True
   
'
End Sub


Sub BillToOptionButton3()
'
' BillToOptionButton Macro
' Macro recorded 9/12/2011 by Tosagua
'

If OptionButton3.Value = True Then
    MsgBox "Enter The   BILL TO   Information."
Range("C20").Select
End If
'
End Sub


Any assistance or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

If you try adding the userform, does that help?

E.g.
If UserForm1.OptionButton1.Value = True Then

StephenJR,

The macros are in the same workbook as the form.
Adding Userform1 or the name of the worksheet has no benefit.

Tosagua - are you able to post a workbook, with just one button perhaps? I can't replicate your error.

StephenJR,

Sample workbook is attached.

The buttons are in the Red Box beneath the form.

It didn't work because you were not using Form buttons but those from the Control menu. You can set a cell link (right-click, format control) and then use code to check the value of the linked cell. In attachment I added second sheet and when a button is clicked A1 records 1, 2 or 3. The buttons are linked to macro which checks that value.
