Why can't I immediately change my choice in an Access form's "option group" control?
Posted on 2012-03-28
I am developing an Access 2007 "project" (.adp) as a front-end to a SQL Server 2007 Express database.
On many of my Access forms I make use of "option group" controls that offer the user a group of radio buttons to choose from.
In most cases, these options can immediately be re-selected, by which I mean the user can select one radio button then select another one instead then select another one instead, etc. without ever leaving that control.
However, I have a couple of similar "option group" controls that do not allow this immediate change of mind. If one radio button is selected, another cannot be immediately selected instead. The user has to click on another control on the form before returning to the "option group" control to select a different radio button.
I have compared the "properties" of the different controls but they seem to be the same.
The only other observation is that the "problem" "option group" controls are both on the same "page" of a multi-tab control and the "good" "option group" controls are on different "pages". But I can't see any significant differences between the "page" properties either.
It is a minor inconvenience but I would like to understand what is going on.
Any ideas anyone?
