I have a frame with two choices (checkboxes).  After I set the focus to the frame, I want to test whehter one or the other checkbox is checked.  After I test the condition, I want to disable the unchecked box and set focus to the next frame or text box.

I am getting an error the expression has no value.  Here is my code:

Private Sub Frame50_AfterUpdate()
    If Me.Check53 = True Then
        Me.Check55.Enabled = False
    Else
        Me.Check53.Enabled = False
    End If
   
    Me.Check_162 = False
    Me.Check167 = False
    Me.Check169 = False
    Me.Check_162.SetFocus
End Sub

What is the proper syntax?

Thank you

Glen

Are the checkboxes part of your Option Group? If so, and if the user does NOT need to interact with the boxes again, then just disable the Option Group:

Me.Frame50.Enabled = False

BTW: You really should look into proper nameing conventions. Names like "Check53" and such don't mean much, and can be very confusing when you revisit the code. Much better to name them something that is indicative of their meaning. For example, if you have an option group for Customer Type, you might name the checkboxes "ckResidential" and "ckCommercial"
