    UserForm help, assigning variable from option button selection

    I'm trying to utilize UserForm option buttons to get info from user. I want to assign the option button selection to a variable that can be used in both the Filename and in a cell in the Excel File as part of a string of text not exclusive to the variable.

    See example UserForm code below. I want Month to be my variable. Assigned to my variable will be whatever the user selected.

    I get "Compile error: Argument not optional"

    [vba]
    If optionJanuary Then Month = "January"
    If optionFebruary Then Month = "February"
    If optionMarch Then Month = "March"
    If optionApril Then Month = "April"
    If optionMay Then Month = "May"
    If optionJune Then Month = "June"
    If optionJuly Then Month = "July"
    If optionAugust Then Month = "August"
    If optionSeptember Then Month = "September"
    If optionOctober Then Month = "October"
    If optionNovember Then Month = "November"
    If optionDecember Then Month = "December"[/vba]

    Please help.

    Don't you want to be using "ElseIf"?

    Do you have an endif? It looks like you're supplying the only required argument for if's except the end...

    Do you need option buttons?

    you could switch to a listbox or a combobox and get away easier.

    [vba]
    Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
    Dim i As Integer
    With Me.ComboBox1
    For i = 1 To 12
    .AddItem MonthName(i)
    Next i
    End With
    End Sub


    Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
    MsgBox ComboBox1.Value
    End Sub

    [/vba]
