Hi All,

I have an Access 2007 database.  There are a group of check boxes where the user will choose one box for ethnicity.  Is there a way where the user will only be allowed to check one box? So if the user checks a box and changes their selection when they click on the new box the old box will be unchecked.

Please see attachment.

Thanks in advance.

Okay, I figured it out.  Will I be able to use that data?  If so, how or where would it be.  I query tables into excel.
