Does this require 8.5? I'm getting unknown script-steps and function missing in tickbox_All calc.

Oops yes ... tickbox_All parameter, object name. I guess it's time to upgrade. :

Nicely done. A nice advantage of Michael's solution over using a radio button set is that its behavior can't be overridden with a shift-click, as is the case with radio buttons. The only minor pitfall I can see is a potential to cause confusion with experienced FileMaker end-users that expect the checkbox set to behave normally, i.e. able to make multiple selections. But that could be addressed with a little ingenuity in the user interface design.

Hmmm... I really did it just for fun. But if you do need a radio button that can't be overridden with a shift-click, just change the field's format to radio - it will work the same way. In fact, even if the field is formatted as an edit-box, it will still keep only the last (bottom) value.

Never underestimate the benefits of fun. :tigger:

Good point.
