    Please Help! Code For Option Buttons in Excel VBA User Form

    Good day,

    A request for help from a complete newbie!

    I have a questionnaire that I have created a User Form for. Creating the user form went well but I am now stuck trying to code the answers to cells in the database.

    I have managed to get the code right for the first 8 questions as they all use a text box field:

    Private Sub CommandButton13_Click()
        erow = Sheets("Database").Range("a" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
            Range("a" & erow + 1) = TextBox1.Value
            Range("b" & erow + 1) = ComboBox1.Value
            Range("c" & erow + 1) = ComboBox2.Value
            Range("d" & erow + 1) = TextBox59.Value
            Range("e" & erow + 1) = TextBox60.Value
            Range("f" & erow + 1) = TextBox61.Value
            Range("g" & erow + 1) = TextBox2.Value
            Range("h" & erow + 1) = OptB_Male.Value
    End Sub
    However, my next question (question 9) requires an Option Box field for "Weather", with the options being:
    1 (Good)
    2 (Fair)
    3 (Bad)

    I need the answer, whether it be 1, 2 or 3, to be placed into column "i" in my excel database (the worksheet is named "Database").

    I have googled extensively and watched many video tutorials, but I cannot understand how to do it. My form makes use of many option boxes so I need to understand the code in order to modify the code for the other questions.

    I will be using the User Form, on a tablet, to carry out multiple surveys. I have a "submit" button that sends the inputted data input to my "Database" worksheet.

    Please help this Novice learn (and understand) new tricks

    modify the code here to get the Value of your option button:
    VBA - Value of an option button in a frame (within an Excel sheet) - Stack Overflow

    Something like this probably

    Assumes OB_Good, OB_Fair, and OB_Bad are the names of the option buttons

    I'd put all 3 inside a frame

        If OB_Good Then
            Range("i" & erow + 1) = "Good"
        ElseIf OB_Fair Then
            Range("i" & erow + 1) = "Fair"
        ElseIf OB_Bad Then
            Range("i" & erow + 1) = "Bad"
        End If


    Remember: Tell us WHAT you want to do, not HOW you think you want to do it

    1. Use [CODE] ....[/CODE ] Tags for readability
    [CODE]PasteYourCodeHere[/CODE ] -- (or paste your code, select it, click [#] button)
    2. Upload an example
    Go Advanced / Attachments - Manage Attachments / Add Files / Select Files / Select the file(s) / Upload Files / Done
    3. Mark the thread as [Solved] when you have an answer
    Thread Tools (on the top right corner, above the first message)
    4. Read the Forum FAQ, especially the part about cross-posting in other forums

    Thank you so much!! Finally, code that is short, sweet, simple, easy to understand and manipulate for other option buttons. I appreciate you

    2 strategies:

    store the value when a optionbutton is clicked; e.g. in the tag property of the userform:

    Private Sub Optionbutton1_click()
      if optionbutton1 then tag=optionbutton1.caption
    End sub

    - check the values of all linked optionbuttons

    cells(1,5)= choose(ABS(1*Opt_1 + 2*Opt_2 +3*Opt_3 +4*Opt_4+5*Opt_5),Opt_01.caption,Opt_2.caption,Opt_3.caption,Opt_4.caption,Opt_5.caption)
