Here is my code:

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim MYCONTROL As CommandButton
For Each MYCONTROL In Form6
MYCONTROL.Enabled = False
On Error GoTo Trap
Next
Trap:
     Err.Clear
   Resume Next

This does nothing to disable my commandbuttons.  If I change the first line to:

Dim MYCONTROL As control

it disables everything including the text box, menu control, etc.  How do I just disable commandbuttons or just menu bar or just text boxes?'  First and formost I need to know the command button.  But Please give me code for the other controls too.

Thank you.

It seems easy enough?

Your code works for me, I don't know why you're having problems with it.  You could also do this:

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim MYCONTROL As Control
    For Each MYCONTROL In Form6
        If TypeOf MYCONTROL Is CommandButton Then
            MYCONTROL.Enabled = False
        End If
    Next
End Sub

Then you can replace the TypeOf statement with whatever control you want to disable

This is exactly what I needed.  I don't know why the first one does not work.

Thanks!
