I want to write code that execute a command button from VB.


I've tried this:

db.Form1!Command1.Value = -1

nothing seems to work.  What is the correct way to do this?

Thanks

I thought it was pretty straight forward.  For example when I click a button on a form in VB5.  it will open the access database and  "click" the command button on the access database.

If you want it to click a button on an access form, make sure the button has a hot key assigned to it and then use appactivate and sendkeys to 'click' the button.

Put this in the code module for Command1

Public Sub BuzzCommand1()
    Command1_Click
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Command1_Click

    MsgBox "hello"

Exit_Command1_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_Command1_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Command1_Click
   
End Sub


Then just call the sub
db.Form1.BuzzCommand1

p.s. you cannot call Command1_Click directly because it is Private

Or you could simple change the declaration from

Private Sub Command1_Click()
 ' something
End Sub

to

Public Sub Command1_Click()
    MsgBox "YO"
End Sub


Then the call would be like:
db.Form1.Command1_Click



Not very nice, but hey - its basic and it works :)
