Calling code from various procedures

I have a basic question.  I know that if I have a public function I can call that from another sub.  Here is my problem. in about 30 different places on a form, I need to open a database and recordset(always the same).

so if I have a function that says:

Sub dbs()
Dim db As DAO.Database
Set db = OpenDatabase("S:\risk\performancesource\dashdatadelete.mdb")
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
end sub


When I Use this sub:

private sub command1_click

dbs
set rs=db.openrecordset("name")

end sub

I get "object required"
how do I write code in a sub to recognize from another sub?

I am offering 100 points.  Please give me a good explanation and some sample code.

Thanks

the scope of the database is contained within the procedure.

it is only visible within sub DBS

1. put option explicit at the start of your form module
2. you need to define the database so it is visible to the command button - so define it as
private mdb as database

and set that within sub DBS

Sub dbs()
 Dim db As DAO.Database
 Set db = OpenDatabase  ("S:\risk\performancesource\dashdatadelete.mdb")
 Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
end sub

private sub command1_click

 dbs
 set rs=db.openrecordset("name")
end sub

You may be declare db and rs on header module or form.

Private db as DAO.Database
private rs As DAO.Recordset
or
Public db as DAO.Database
Public rs As DAO.Recordset


Sub dbs()
 Set db = OpenDatabase  ("S:\risk\performancesource\dashdatadelete.mdb")
end sub

private sub command1_click
 dbs
 set rs=db.openrecordset("name")
end sub
