Option group problem

I have an option group on a form.  There are 3 checkboxes the user can select from.  When the user clicks on one of them another field, named "TotalPopulated" is populated with the numeric value of a separate field named "Total".

But if the user has already selected on of the options, and then changes the value of the field named "Total" then I want the value that was originally populated into "TotalPopulated" to be changed to the new value in "Total".

Sort of as if the user selected the option again.

Can this be done?

I tried in the afterupdate event of the "Total" field:


but that doesn't work.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In the AfterUpdate event of the "Total" field, call the event that fires when you make changes in the option group.  If the name of your option group is called grpSelection and you are using its After Update event, you would do something like:
Call grpSelection_AfterUpdate.
