Folks,
I've tried this which is not working:
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
Dim optButton As OptionButton
    
    For Each optButton In OptionButons.OptionButton
        optButton.Value = False
    Next optButton
End Sub

Open in new window

The objective is that when the worksheet is activated my option buttons are all set to FALSE.
The option button are Grouped as Group 6
They are also labeled:
optButton1
optButton2
optButton3
The name of the worksheet is "OptionButtons"

    With ActiveSheet
        .Shapes("Option Button 1").ControlFormat.Value = False
        .Shapes("Option Button 2").ControlFormat.Value = False
        .Shapes("Option Button 3").ControlFormat.Value = False
    End With

Alternatively (does not reference shape names):
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
    Dim optButton As Shape
    For Each optButton In Me.Shapes
        Shapes(optButton.Name).ControlFormat.Value = xlOff
    Next optButton
End Sub

Glen, wouldn't that be a problem if there were other shapes on the sheet?

Martin I was leaning towards your solution until I read a article and tried what I proposed - great job.
Glenn, I'm going to keep your solution in case I ever need to clear all shape objects.
Thanks gentlemen!

Unfortunately Glenn's solution will fail on any sheet that has a Shape (like a non-ActiveX command button) that doesn't have a 'Value' property.

Martin is correct; my subroutine does not work as shown.  If the option button default names are not changed, then this will work instead:
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
    Dim optButton As Shape
    For Each optButton In Me.Shapes
        If Left(optButton.name,6) = "Option" then
            Shapes(optButton.Name).ControlFormat.Value = xlOff
        End If
    Next optButton
End Sub
