Mutually Exclusive Check Boxes

    I have a form that allows the user to choose between several times of
    day represented by check boxes. Two of those times of day I want to be
    mutually exclusive, so that if one is set to True (checked), the other
    is automatically, and immediately set to False. I thought that a
    simple IF statement would do the trick but it doesn't seem to work:

    If Waking.Value = True Then
    Morning.Value = False
    ElseIf Morning.Value = True Then
    Waking.Value = False
    End If

    My thinking is that perhaps the On_Current event for the form is not
    the right place to put the code, am I at least on the right track?

    Charles,

    You don't need to code for it. Just place the mutually exclusive checkboxes
    into an Option Group.

    If those choices are mutually exclusive you should use one field in your table
    instead of two and then use an OptionGroup frame with two RadioButtons within.
    That will handle the exclusive part for you.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
