Command1.Enabled = False ??

I have a form with only one Command Button.  When the user clicks the button, I execute a sub which sets Command1.Enabled = False.  Before the sub returns, I re-enable the Command1 button.
Problem:
If the user clicks the button while it is disabled, the sub will execute again upon return.  Why is this? I thought disabling a control prevented the click event from entering the event queue.  Any suggestions?

Have you tried putting a DoEvents in your code before you re-enable the button.  Incase it is queuing things until it gets a chance to process them?
