Are you saying that you have a report or some other container that displays with a filter and you want to remove that filter in code??????

I am not sure that I understand your question.

In your command button you could issue the following code:

DoCmd.ShowAllRecords

This will remove the filter/sort.  Or, you can do this:

Me.Filter = ""
Me.FilterOn = False

To set another filter do this:

Me.Filter = "[FieldName] = 'Criteria'"
Me.FilterOn = True
