I need to create a counter that will count in incraments of 1 every time I click a command button, and display the number on a label on the same form.  Any suggestions would be mucho appreciated.

put this in Form_Load

Command1.tag = 0

PRIVATE Command1_Click()
count = val(command1.tag)
count = count + 1
command1.tag = count
label1.caption = count
END SUB

Oops! COUNT is a reserved word. Change it to CNT and it'll work.
