    Option Buttons & Save Values


    One more for the experts... I am using option buttons on a form and I noticed the Save the value for later use option. I have selected this once, but I could not find or figure out how to recall the info. How do I get that info pulled to go onto a report?

    and I noticed the Save the value for later use option.
    Where did you see this?
    AFAIK the control value would need to be bound to a field in forms record source.

    It was an option when using the option group.

    The option to save the value for later use means that it will be available to you as long as the form is open. You can refer to it just like any other control. The other option is to store it in a table in which case it becomes a bound control.

    I do not have that choice when creating an option group but I do get it when creating a combo box.
