Hi,

I am sure most will find this extremely easy but
its bugging me.
I have created a custom contacts form. I have attached
a command button that I want to use to call a VB app.
to diplay some data. How do I attach the code to the command button on my form. I am in design view of my custom form.
I have tried clicking properties.I would welcome any suggestions at all.
Do I have to use VB Script, and can I use ordinary VB or VBA instead of VBScript.

Thanks in advance

* Select Form | View code.

Now you just need to type 'Sub <name_of_control>_Click()' and type in your vbscript code and then finish it off with and End Sub.

Example for a command button named cmdReadData

Sub cmdReadData_Click ()
 ' Create some object if it has a COM interface
 ' read/write some data
 ' Cleanup any variables we don't need
 ' Release the the object
End Sub
