    Regarding the option1. If I have three options in
    my form (option1(0) - option1(2), why when I load
    the form, option1(0) is always the default (selected)?

    Can I do something so that none is selected until the
    user click on them?

    Again, thanks for all of you great HELP, folks!

    I think that something has to be selected at all times

    What I am trying to do


    'What I am trying to do is that if the user clicks
    ' on certain option, then run that program. And
    ' option1(0) is a valid option, but yet it will
    ' call the option1_Click() when I load the form, and
    ' I don't want to run option1(0) until the user is
    ' actually click on it.

    Private Sub Option1_Click(Index As Integer)
    ' will come here when the form is loaded! Why?

    End Sub

    Again, thanks alot for the help!

    I suggest choosing the option then using a command button or something to determine which option is selected, then do whatever

    I think this is a bug

    Because it does not work like that for all others
    option that is placed individually.

    Otherwise, the option1_click() really should have been
    option1_default() and/or option1_bug().

    Workaround

    Create a module level boolen variable called something like mblnSkipFirst and set it to true in the Form_Load event.

    At the beginning of the Option_Click, add:

    Code:
    If blnSkipOnce Then
      blnSkipOnce = False
      Exit Sub
    End If

    try this:

    In the Activate event of your form add this:

    Dim x as Integer

    For x = 0 To 2
    Option1(x).Value = False
    Next
    File not found!

    Thanks. That sounds like something I could easily do.
