I want to set up my database so that a when a user makes a selection in Field1 (radio buttons) Field2 then shows a figure based on the selection in Field1. So far I have been able to complete this but what I really want is to make it possible that if Field1 is changed in the future then a new figure will be displayed in Field2 automatically. I am missing something really simple I think - I need help please.

Make Field 2 a calculation. You can also make it unstored, in order to have it update with more regularity, although it should automatically update.
