I have a user form with four option buttons

if the user presses Option 1, another userform appears. if they close the second user form then they are back to the original user form.

If they wanted to press Option 1 again, they cant, as it is already selected.

How can i set the properties so that once a button is pressed, it is not stuck on that option

Thanks

Why would you use option buttons for this? Could you switch to regular buttons?

An alternative would be to clear your option buttons once the second form opens, or you could create a manual reset so all the options are available again.

Sub OptionClear()

    Dim ws As Worksheet
    Dim obj As OLEObject

    Set ws = Worksheets("yoursheetname")

    For Each obj In ws.OLEObjects
        If TypeName(obj.Object) = "OptionButton" Then      
           'if this is checkbox, then change the letters withing quotes to CheckBox
            obj.Object.Value = False
        End If
    Next obj
End Sub

Open in new window


call the above sub after calling second userform

Why not use a combobox and command button combination?

The combobox lists the options and the command button opens the relevant userform.
