Creating option groups
An option group enables you to provide users with a set of
choices from which they can select only one option. Each choice
corresponds to a number that is stored in a numeric field in your
table. (You can choose between a Byte, Integer, or Long Integer
for the numerical data type to be stored.)
The option group also allows you to select one of the options as
a default choice and to present options as a set of check boxes,
option buttons, or toggle buttons. The Control Wizard will assist
you in making these and other choices.
Create an option group
1 On the Form Design Tools ribbon, click the Design tab with a form
open in design view.
2 Click the option group button in the Controls toolbox.
3 Click and hold the mouse at a suitable position on the form.
4 Drag the mouse across an area to size the control.
5 Type your option choices in the Option Group Wizard, and click
6 Optionally, specify a default choice, by selecting from the available
options, and then click Next.

TIP If you need to add more options to an existing option
group, you can either use the controls to drop a new control
onto the option group or use copy and paste with an existing option in
a group. In both cases, you need to check that the new option has a
different Option Value property for existing options and that the
option is part of the group. (Click the group to highlight all the options
inside the group.)
