Weird option button behavior

Just received a message that one of my forms was not behaving properly.  It seems that when someone seleted one of the option buttons in a set, more than one option would get selected.  I said to myself, “This is not possible.  You can only select one option at a time.”

Well, come to find out, I was right except for one minor detail.  When I double clicked on one of the buttons in design mode to show me the value, I noticed that it had the same value as another option button.  So whenever one was selected, both would populate and give the incorrect value.  I changed the value and now all is well.

Moral of the story……make sure to triple check your values.  It will cause a lot less grief down the road.
