What is the equivalent of SetValue in Access 2010

in a previous version of access i have been using option buttons for payment methods.  A macro with a SetValue action was used to set the value of an unbound field displayed on the main form. Tried to do this in access 2010 and could not find the setvalue action .

    The SetValue action is still available. but is hidden because it's by default not a secured action.

    to show it you have to click the Show All Actions button in the Show/Hide Macro Tools Design Ribbon Tab.
    of course you can also use vba to set values to form fields.

    The SetValue action is still available. However, it is by default not a secured action which is hidden in Access Macro design until you click the Show All Actions button in the Show/Hide Macro Tools

    Edit, sorry didn't see Dany's comment when I started to type mine.
