I use KeyPreview = True for form

Then have:
Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
If KeyCode = vbKeySpace Then
 etc etc

Problem - if i run the program it performs the keydown event ok but also any command button that has the focus at the time - no good

How to simply get the SPACE BAR to perform something on its own ?

Try this:

Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
If KeyCode = 32 Then
   MsgBox "Space key pressed"
   KeyCode = 0
End If



Good luck!!
