Option button keeps value across records

I created the code to click a option button on record, which turns a label visible, enables a cmd button and disables a text box. All of that works, but when I navigate to the next record the option button value keeps its value across the next record, and I don't want that, what I am missing??
Option Compare Database
Option Explicit



Private Sub Form_Current()
If Me.optAsset.Value = -1 Then
Me!lblAsset.Visible = True
Me!cmdUpdateID.Enabled = True
Me!AssetNo.Enabled = False
Else: Me!AssetNo.Enabled = True
Me!lblAsset.Visible = False
Me!cmdUpdateID.Enabled = False
End If
End Sub


Private Sub optAsset_Click()
If optAsset.Value = -1 Then
Me.lblAsset.Visible = True
Me.cmdUpdateID.Enabled = True
Me.AssetNo.Enabled = False
Me.Comment = (Date & " -- No ID was found on Equipment, please notify Department of use to fix this issue.")
Else
Me.lblAsset.Visible = False
Me.cmdUpdateID.Enabled = False
Me.AssetNo.Enabled = True
End If
End Sub

Private Sub cmdUpdateID_Click()
Dim i As String
i = InputBox("Enter Asset ID Number", "Asset ID")
Me.AssetNo.Enabled = True
Me.AssetNo = i
Me.optAsset.Value = 0
Me.lblAsset.Visible = False
Me.Comment = (Date & "  --  ID found and affixed to equipment")

End Sub

is the option "optAsset" bound to a field in the table?

 You need to bind the control to a field in the record by setting it's controlsource or you need to assign the default value you want in the forms OnCurrent event, which fires when a record receives the focus.

Good to know in the future, so what do I need to do to fix this then. Can I bind it to the AssetNo field with it showing text "Unknown ID", if so how. I know how to bind it just no the text portion.

try adding a YESNo field to your table and bind the optAsset to that field.

OnCurrent event:

If NZ(Me.AssetNo,"") = "" then
  ' No Asset ID
  Me.lblAsset.Visible = True
  Me.cmdUpdateID.Enabled = True
  Me.AssetNo.Enabled = False
  Me.Comment = (Date & " -- No ID was found on Equipment, please notify Department of use to fix this issue.")
  Me.optAsset.Value = -1
Else
 ' Asset ID
  Me.lblAsset.Visible = False
  Me.cmdUpdateID.Enabled = False
  Me.AssetNo.Enabled = True
  Me.Comment = (Date & "  --  ID found and affixed to equipment")
  Me.optAsset.Value = 0
End If

Not a problem.

As an add-on, anytime your working with unbound controls on a form, I like to put all the logic for setting the "state" of things in a sub procedure in the form iteself.  ie.:

Procedure Sub SetFormControls()

If NZ(Me.AssetNo,"") = "" then
  ' No Asset ID
  Me.lblAsset.Visible = True
  Me.cmdUpdateID.Enabled = True
  Me.AssetNo.Enabled = False
  Me.Comment = (Date & " -- No ID was found on Equipment, please notify Department of use to fix this issue.")
  Me.optAsset.Value = -1
Else
 ' Asset ID
  Me.lblAsset.Visible = False
  Me.cmdUpdateID.Enabled = False
  Me.AssetNo.Enabled = True
  Me.Comment = (Date & "  --  ID found and affixed to equipment")
  Me.optAsset.Value = 0
End If

End Sub

  Then from the OnCurrent, you would do:

  Call SetFormControls()

 and the same from the AfterUpdate event of the control itself or any place else that you might be changing the state of the control or what it's tied to.

  This allows you to keep one copy of the code rather then having it in multiple places.

  That may not work in this case because on one hand your checking the field and setting the state of the controls, but in the update your checking the state of the control and setting the reset of the controls and the field.
