Status: I have a form with sections on the same page, in each section the user can only chose one solution. I'm using group of radio buttons on Excel 2007.

Problem: When I ad a new group, the buttons interact with the group a head. I can't make it work separately one from the other, event if the groups have other names.

Question: Can you please help me find an easy way to do that on Excel 2007 (I don't have the choice of the software)?

To make them independent you need to use the Group Box form control. Surround each group of buttons in a group box control will make them not interfere with each other.

I used those groups, but they still interact as one same entity. – Hydroline Feb 6 '12 at 9:34
There's two different types of radio buttons, make sure you're using the Form Control and not the ActiveX control. – Jesse Feb 6 '12 at 17:56
